    Remove account after NN days of inactivity


    It is not something one does not like to speak about often, but death is a fact of life.

    In this respect Google seems to has an option to remove the Google account after a certain period of inactivity.
    I think one can set the period (upto 18 months). Google's default is 3 months I believe.
    A good article can be found on helpdeskgeek.com
    How To Activate Google Inactive Account Manager

    Google itself doesn't seem to have a kind of Help file showing what pages to expect when starting the "Inactive Account Manager".

    Q: Maybe I am overlooking it, but I vainly tried to find something similar within my Outlook account, does Outlook have something similar? (i.e. automatically remove all services after a certain period of inactivity)

    First a reminder should be sent to the user, allowing time to respond. User may be on vacation. In case of no response, maybe a 2nd reminder, then if there is still no response, delete all that is related to the account.

    :)

  3. Remove an account

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand your inconvenience. We will assist you to resolve this issue.

    I suggest you to refer the following Microsoft help article to remove the mail account from Mail app.

    Removing an account

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/remove-account

    Note: The steps for Windows 8/8.1 applies to Windows 10 as well.

    I would like to inform you that if you do not have any other user account created on your computer, you will not be able to remove the account. The only option for you is to convert the existing Microsoft account to Local account.
    You may refer to the following steps on how to switch from Microsoft account to Local account.

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

    If you want to bypass the login screen and directly enter to desktop without entering the password, I suggest you to follow the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows Logo + R keys.
    • Type netplwiz and Press
      ENTER.
    • Uncheck the box “Users must enter
      a username and password to use this computer” and Click
      Apply.
    • Double click on the User account on which you want to apply this settings.
    • You’ll now be asked to enter the username and password of the account you want to be logged in with automatically
    • Click on OK button.


    Hope this information is helpful. For any further assistance on Windows, feel free to post your query on Microsoft Community Forum.

    Thank you.
