    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.

  3. Can't remove a Work or School account from Windows 10

    I found I could not delete the work or school account, because it was likely controlled by a domain controller, which I could no longer log onto.

    I found the solution below DOES work, as described by the user Pvandamcom2

    Steps:

    - In Control Panel, User Accounts, select your account

    - Select "instead log on with a local account" and follow the steps

    - Then logon, go back to accounts, and go to Access to work and school account

    - Click Disconnect for the Work or School Account. The work account dissappeared

    - Last step, go back and change logon to be with Microsoft Account instead of
    local account

    The work account is no longer displayed

    Remove a deleted Work or School account from Windows 10

    Fix "Work or School account problem" after deleting an e-mail account.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I appreciate the efforts taken by you in resolving the issue. I understand that you are receiving an error related to your email account. I’ll certainly assist you with the issue.



    However, please let us know:



    • When you say “I deleted the e-mail account” do you mean deleting the Microsoft account or deleting the account from your computer?
    • Are you using a Microsoft account to login to the computer?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts, and select
      Access work or school
      from the left pane.
    3. Now, click on the email account and select
      Disconnect
      .
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions.


    If this doesn’t work, you may want to try converting the account to a local account and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows logo key + I, to open
      Settings.
    2. Click on Accounts and select
      Your info
      from the left pane.
    3. Click on Sign in with a local account instead.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.


    Let us know how it goes.



    Regards,
