    can't switch to microsoft account in windows 10

    Thanks for the reply, but you're way to late to the party, you realise this was last year ?

    This was last year, way before cortana came out.

    I fixed the problem months ago

    I got no help from microsoft, I found a different method to fix the problem

    All the options relating to switching to a microsoft account are greyed out.

    You cant change them at all.

    The fix was using MSconfig, configuration tab, Check the box for hide all microsoft services

    then click on disable all, then restart the PC, after that those greyed out options are working.

    microsoft dont even help on their own forum for this problem after all this time

    when solution above has been known about for months.

    I have the same problem, but the Wajam program is not installed.

    Are there any other solutions for this problem?

    Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    It is odd, but I find that upgrades usually have some sort of strange issue.

    I am logged in with a local account but I do have a Microsoft account. When clicking on the "Log-in with Microsoft account instead" it goes straight to a window asking for the log-in details i.e. email address and password. I fill the details in and click Log-In (the only option) and nothing else happens.
    The "confirm local account password" screen, and switch screen never appear and of course the account is not switched.
    I am confused.

    Hello Keith,

    While in Settings, does your account show an email address at the top like in the screenshot under step 10?

    My solution was to restore system using advanced start up options. Just restore to an earlier point. You will loose some programs, but It's worth it.

  12. I cannot restore this computer as it has just been upgraded to windows 10.

    Many seem to have the problem, so maybe Microsoft will do something ?

    Thank you.

    You might see if you may be able to add your Microsoft account as a new account on the PC instead.
