  1. Microsoft account re-creation

    I deleted my Microsoft account in June 2019 in order to ensure that my 10 year old Skype account was truly deleted so I would no longer be billed. Since my Skype account was created prior to the acquisition of Skype by Microsoft, this might be a reason why I can't seem to recreate my Microsoft account. Every time I log onto my PC using my local non-Microsoft credentials, I receive messages stating that OneDrive isn't signed in or messages to fix my Microsoft account. I tried to recreate my Microsoft account but the dialog window states that my email is already used. I tried clicking on the 'sign-in' link for keeping my email address to create my new Microsoft account, but this does not seem to resolve the issue. I can still use Microsoft Office tools but the other sign-in services seem to be blocked. I would like to find out how to reactivate my Microsoft account so that I could actually use it.

    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:
      net user test /del
