    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

  3. 2 part question......Removing an account AND.....changing a profile Picture

    Hi Carl,

    The account that you’re seeing on the login screen of your Windows 10 PC can be removed from the
    Settings or using an elevated Command Prompt. To sort out your concern, we suggest that you manage the account by following the steps below:

    • Click Start > Settings > Accounts.
    • For Windows versions 1607 and 1703, click the Family & other users.
    • For version 1709, click Family & other people.
    • Select the account that you want to delete, click Remove, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process.
    • After completing the steps, you may check if the issue persists.

    You may also use the Command Prompt to delete the account by proceeding with these steps:

    • Click Start, type Command Prompt, right-click on the program and select
      Run as administrator.
    • Type net user and press Enter. It will show the list of accounts on your computer.
    • On the Command Prompt window, enter this command: net user (User account) /delete and press
      Enter. (Example: net user /delete).
    • Once you’re done, this process will automatically remove the account from your computer.

    Note: Before doing these steps, restart your PC to make sure that the account that you want to delete is not currently signed in. Additionally, you may be prompted for an administrator password and confirmation of the changes that require
    administrative rights. Provide the password and confirm to proceed. Please make sure that you follow the steps with care to avoid any issue.


    Furthermore, you may change the account photo on your PC by following the steps provided in this article on how to
    change your account picture. Once you’re on the page, you may
    proceed with the steps and complete the process. After completing the steps, you may check if you’re able to change the image on your user profile.

    Keep us updated about your concern for additional assistance.

    Hello,

    If you want to delete local user account on your Windows 10 computer, you can follow the steps below:

    Note: When you want to delete a user account from your computer:

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to delete a user account.

    You will not be able to delete a user account that is currently signed in. You will need to sign out the user first.

    Be sure to always have at least one enabled administrator account on the PC to avoid not being able to perform actions that require administrator rights.

    • Press Windows key, click on Settings.
    • Click on Account, click on Family and other users.
    • Select the user you want to delete under Other users and click on
      Remove.
    • Accept the UAC (User Account Control) prompt.
    • Select Delete account and data if you wish to delete an account and the data and follow onscreen instructions.

      OR
    Step 2: Steps to Delete a User Account in Command Prompt

    • Press Windows + X keys from the keyboard, select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type net user and hit Enter to list the user accounts on your device.
    • Type net user "User account " /delete and hit Enter to delete the user account.
