    Microsoft Account On or Off?


    Recently Microsoft sent me an email saying that users need to log in to Microsoft Account once every two years or some services may be ended. I had closed Microsoft Account previously because I did not want it to possibly control or change anything on my computer. I logged into Microsoft Account and had to set up a new password so it may be a new account. My question is how do I know if I have Microsoft Account? It is not shown in Settings, Accounts. It just shows my computer and my name. In any case I wist to close my Microsoft Account if I have one. How do I do that? FWIW my negative experience in the past was that the desktop wallpaper of one laptop was transferred to my second laptop. Then the password of the second laptop was changed to be the same as the other laptop. I guessed right and was able to rescue the the laptop. I closed Microsoft Account after that. Thanks.

    :)

    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

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
