    Microsoft account


    I seem to have 2 Microsoft accounts. One has my devices registered to it and one has office 365 on it. I want to have one account ideally but I know this isn't possible. Could I add my devices to my account with 365 on it and delete the other account? Would this have any implications?


    Thanks for any help.

    :)

    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
