  1. Microsoft account


    I have a tablet that I purchased through my nursing program while in school. Being since it was purchased through school it had to be set up with their email so they could fix issues if they occurred. Now that I am out of school and the email is no longer active I am having trouble deleting that account and setting it up where I can do anything on the tablet. I need help to figure this out, please. I can't even add my printer to the device without signing in. I have done everything that I know to do thus far.

    :)

    sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
