  1. Trying to pass on my old pc to my son


    I just built a new pc and I'm having a few problems getting my old one ready to give to my son.

    • I have 2 email accounts that I need to take off. I don't want to delete them and end up losing the account. I have them both set up on my new pc.
    • OneDrive is synced between both my new and old pc. I didn't set this up to happen it just started doing it. Now anything I do is mirrored on the other. For example I delete or add an item to documents it starts syncing the two back up. I need to make these two pc's separate entities.
    • Note - I have an office 365 account with 4 seats left over. I plan on giving one of those to my son. I guess I add him to the family in the setup page for office 365 online.
    • Once this is all done or before if needed I can add his email to the system. I want him to have his own office programs and OneDrive, no sharing back to me or me to him. Honestly he doesn't even need the OneDrive unless it could be to keep a backup of his documents folder.


    Last question that has to do with my new pc. Thought I would ask while I'm here. I setup my first email account and it made me assign a 4 digit PIN. Now I am trying to add my second account and it again wants me to add this PIN. tells me to go to the same location in windows but I can't do it since it automatically fills in my first email account.


    Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks

    :)
