    Tried to separate an account that we've had for many years & not lose identity or gaming...


    Last weekend I tried to separate my long term account to go just to my son. I didn't mind starting my own account, didn't use most of it anyway, I couldn't delete his account completely and right then. so I gave a new email address to his forever account and figured after 30 days the old one would close and everything would be good. Not even close! I changed his email in XBox and Microsoft so I though that was good. His xbox just blinks and opens like 10 screens on his computer> Very important: ALL COMPUTER, no xBox anymore. I was tired of everything he did on his computer, my computer did

    With a Microsoft account you can then use OneDrive and Office Online apps for free. You can also use built-in native Windows apps which require a Microsoft account like Mail, Skype Preview, People, Calendar and download apps from Windows Store.

    See steps 3 to 5 in this tutorial to continue using local account as Windows sign-in account even when / if you download apps from store and / or use Windows apps requiring a Microsoft account, to avoid Windows user account converting to Microsoft account: Store - Use when Signing in to Windows 10 with Local Account - Windows 10 Forums
