    Remove account


    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

    Separate 2 computers from 1 Microsoft account

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you want to remove the Microsoft account from one of the two computers, I suggest to convert the Microsoft account to a local account on one of the computers. This will separate two computers from the same Microsoft account.



    Please refer this article
    Switch your Windows 10 device to a local account
    .



    However, if you don’t want to convert the user account to a local account, then you need to use a different Microsoft email ID to separate two computers.



    To use a different Microsoft email account on one of the computer, you first need to convert the current account to a local account by following the same steps provided in the article above, then click on
    Sign-in with Microsoft account instead option from settings and enter the different Microsoft credentials that you wish to use.



    Hope it helps.



    Thanks,

    Noor Azam S

    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
