    Hi all,


    I wanted to share this in case anyone else was having the same frustrating problem. I had a personal Microsoft account that I had mistakenly signed into on a work PC. To remove it, I followed the steps to go to Settings >> Email & Accounts, then select the account and click "Remove". Well, I got there, and there was no "Remove" button! Only a "Manage" button appeared.

    The "Your info" page probably also looks like this

    If you are having this problem, look for a text link on the "Your info" page that says something like "Stop signing in to all Microsoft apps automatically". Click on that text.

    "Your info" should now say "Local Account" instead of your email

    Go back to the "Email & accounts" page and you should now be able to remove the account

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    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

    • Click Local account, type a username, and a
      password (if you'd like one).
