    My Microsoft account that I use for my windows is gone.


    Hello,


    I recently wanted to download some apps through the Microsoft Store but I realised that the hotmail that I use to login to this windows has been deleted? I've already tried to recover my account but all it says is "Enter a valid email address", is the account gone forever? if so does that mean I can't download any apps or even purchase the game pass without making a new windows account and using a new Microsoft/Hotmail account?

    :)

    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 My Microsoft account that I use for my windows is gone. :(

  3. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.
