  1. User with admin removed work school account only account is a personal 365 home account no...


    I have an HP pavilion that was loaded win 10 pro 64-bit and added to a work school domain with a few user accounts created /added to the laptop. It was also added to a Microsoft home account with non-admin privilege. Was that way for a cpl years. A user for work school account domain that had administrative privileges unfortunately somehow removed the work school account from the PC. The PC at boot up will now go straight to the 365 home account prompting for a password and you cannot switch users. I can logon as the home account user but have no ability to add other accounts. Going to the settings as the home user, no other accounts are listed for users. I was able to add the work school domain to the user account but it does me no good as the other user accounts still show up and reboots repeat the same skip user choice to log in but goes straight to the pwd for the home account. The users files still shows the other accounts but obviously not accessible. Being cloud-based the user would only lose what was local. Is it easier just to wiped out and reset or is there a back door to this fairly easy? I do not have access to boot CDs so that is not an option. The user states it happened this morning when it was booted up

    Deleting User Accounts

    If you can access the admin account through safe mode then all you have to do to remove the other account passwords is go into User Accounts in the control panel and either delete the accounts or, I'm not sure, remove the account passwords.

    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:

    My admin account switched to a user account!

    The first of the many diagrams in this thread show that the link Sign in with a local account instead is displayed for the account that is currently logged on and so the reversion procedure might work for this account. For normal circumstances, that would initiate the conversion back to a local account for the user account currently logged in - see my 23rd & 26th September 2016 posts in revert to local account from one converted to MSAccount. I have no way of knowing how Windows will react to an attempt to use this procedure for the Built-In Admin account and I do not know if that link Sign in with a local account instead will be displayed or not.

    I think I side-stepped this issue by suggesting that that
    • An extra password-protected Admin level account is created, and
    • The Built-In Admin is disabled, and
    • The recovery attempt focuses on whichever existing user account remains active afterwards.

    Personally, I would reinstall Windows 10 without even attempting this recovery. Installation takes very little effort once everything is backed up and the only necessary user interactions are right at the start & right at the end so it can be initiated before making a pot of tea. It took about 30, 60 & 90 minutes for each of my computers [the 30 minuter is 6 months old, the 60 minuter is 7 years old, 90 minuter is 12 years old].

    Raner - I am trying to avoid sounding like I am nagging you into doing a clean install.
    • Once you have recovered the existing user account you can attempt to re-enable & remove the MSAccount link from your Built-In Admin if that link appears in Settings, Accounts.
    • Bree says it cannot be done and I think the same but I have never tried - I have never been able to get to Settings using the Built-In Admin because it cannot run any Windows 10 Apps so I do not know how it can be done [but the diagrams in Bree's link shows that those users got there].
    • Even though I have the safety of having created two spare password-protected Admin accounts I would not want to know that my Built-In Admin was sitting in the background but unable to help me if my other accounts were corrupted.
