  1. Removing PC from windows account


    Might get roasted here for this, but I'm prepared. I'm a man.

    I want to remove my PC from my Microsoft account, * and potentially use another account, maybe Gmail?

    I have it registered to an old hotmail email address.

    If I remove it, what happens?

    How do I keep Windows? What info do I need to keep or re acquire my Windows and affiliates?

    Can I register it to my Gmail or google account instead? I would prefer that.

    Or can I make a new email account for it?

    *(reason being is I have it tied to my hotmail account which I've had since gr 9, and use it only for everything spam.. And having my pc registered to. Bad combo in my opinion)

    Any advice or suggestions here would be appreciated!

    Thank you

    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.

    removing a microsoft account from a Windows 10 laptop

    Hi,

    To help resolve your concern, we suggest that you add a local account first on your PC, before removing the other account. Follow the steps below:

    • To create a local account on your Windows 10 PC:

    • Press the Windows key + R.
    • Type netplwiz, and then click OK.
    • Click Add.
    • Click Sign in without a Microsoft account (not recommended).
    • Click Local account, type a username, and a
      password (if you'd like one).
    • Click Next, and then click Finish.
    • Sign out of the Microsoft account you want to delete, sign in using the
      local account you created, and then remove the account you want to delete.

    • To remove a Microsoft account from your Windows 10 PC:

    • Click the Start button, and then click Settings.
    • Click Accounts, scroll down, and then click the Microsoft account you would like to delete.
    • Click Remove, and then click Yes.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Removing PC from windows account

    Remove account from old pc

    Hi Richard,

    Apologies for the delay in responding. During this time, have you already removed the account on the PC? In case that you haven't, here are the steps on how you can remove an account in Windows 10.

    Note: Before you can remove an account, you need to create a Local Administrator. Here are the steps:


    • Select the Start button, then select Settings
      > Accounts > Family & other people > Add someone else to this PC.

    • Enter a user name, password, password hint, and then select Next.

    • To make the new account an administrator account, select Start > Settings > Account > Family & other people, and select Change account type. Under Account type,
      select Administrator > OK. Restart your machine and sign in with the new administrator account.

    To remove a user account in Windows 10, here are the steps:

    • Press Windows key on your keyboard, 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 account and the data and follow onscreen instructions.

    Let me know if there's anything else you need.
