    Microsoft account associated with Administrator account issue


    I want to change the Microsoft account associated with the administrator account on my laptop. I have tried to look for solutions, but what I have found is mostly just make another account and turn it into an admin account or reset the laptop. I want to keep all my files since they are all school files, and I would prefer to not have to reinstall all of my apps. I just need to change the Microsoft account since it is not mine it's my sibling's account. How do I switch the Microsoft account associated with the administrator.

    :)

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Microsoft account associated with Administrator account issue :(

    Undo Built-in Administrator Account tied to a Microsoft Account

    Hello @Converseallstar95, Microsoft account associated with Administrator account issue :)

    Could it be that the built-in Administrator may just be signed in to the Store app with the Microsoft account?

    If so, then you could reset the "Microsoft Store" app back to default to see if that may remove the association.

    If not, then check to see if it may be listed using step 3 in Option Two below, and can be removed.

    Change Microsoft Account Details in Administrator Account


    Hi Daryl, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    It's quite easy in fact, simply switch the account in question first to a local account, then switch back to a Microsoft account, this time using your wife's MS account credentials.

    Tutorials:
    Notice that before doing this you need to remove the new additional MS account on the PC, the one you created with her credentials. Windows allows only one user account for each email address, if the new account exists you cannot switch the original administrator account to an MS account using the same email address.
