    Unable to Hide Built in Adminstrator Account (Version 1909.)

    Bree, having followed your advice, a second account named "Andrew Griffin" appeared in the list of accounts on the login screen. This disappeared when I reversed the step.

    Brink, I didn't delete my account - it shows up as as "oem" in netplwiz.

    Attached a is list of accounts and you'll see that the guest account is degraded - relevant?UserAccountDetails.txt

  3. Creating or signing in to microsoft account

    Hi Gloria,

    The error code that your are getting when adding an account is usually caused by the following:

    • Your phone has an incorrect date and time set.
    • You do not have a data connection.
    • Your phone is in a "bad state."
    We suggest that you follow the steps on this link to set up your Microsoft
    Account on your device.

    Keep us posted for further assistance.

    Regards.

    I set up a second Microsoft account by accident and can't reverse it.

    Microsoft account and deleting all settings of Windows 10 Preview


    Ok.

    If, instead, when I install a Windows 10 system, I create a local account and configure it and then turned it into a Microsoft account. At this point, how can I avoid that the settings are synchronized automatically when I finish this step and to synchronize the new settings that I had already set when I had the local account?

    Thanks

    Bye
