  1. Remove a deactivated account on Windows 10


    Hi!My computer Windows 10 will not let me change my PIN from the settings since Windows Hello is not accessible; it wants me to log in to my organization and give it access. My administrator is my main, personal account, but when I click the button for Windows Hello to give access, it brings me to my old school login page. I had deleted this account and removed it from Microsoft, but my computer somehow still sees it as my organization and it is still an account on this computer as well as my personal and new school accounts.

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.

    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.

    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 Remove a deactivated account on Windows 10 :(
