    I forgot my account


    So I forgot my account that I made a few years ago when I wanted to redeem my free edition of Minecraft Windows 10 for buying Java Edition. I had no other emails or phone numbers linked to the account, so I don't know what to do. I've tried all the recovery options but to no avail. If you have any information on how I could recover my account, i would appreciative.

    :)

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del
