  2. How to delete an adult account in the Family Settings.

    Hi,

    To resolve your issue, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    • As an adult in the family account, sign in with your Microsoft account.
    • Under Your family, click
      Remove
      .
    • Click the child account you want to remove, and click Remove.
    • You will get an email confirmation once the child has been removed from the family.
    Note: If you removed a Child account, it will be tagged as an "Orphaned account" and you will need to attach another "Parent account".

    Regards.

  3. I can't leave my family!!!!

    Before you will be able to remove an adult account, you have to remove all the child accounts under Family. That’s why it is important to confirm if you’re trying to remove an adult account or a child account. One of the methods to check the account description
    is by going to Settings. Follow these steps:



    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Click Family & other accounts.
    • Under the account user name is the description of the account. You will see if it is a
      Child account or an Adult account.


    To remove an account from the Family in Windows 10, you can review the instructions included in this
    link. Follow the steps under
    For Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 8.1, or Windows RT 8.1: Remove people from your Microsoft account family.
