    Windows 10 Account Problems


    Hi All

    I have 2 accounts on my desktop machine. One for me - and one for my wife.

    All was well until I tried to set up 365 Family for both of us.

    Now it seems my wife is permanently signed into my account - although 'My Account' shows otherwise!

    Confused? Let me try to explain.


    The 2 accounts have separate names.

    So mine in *** Email address is removed for privacy ***, and my wife's is *** Email address is removed for privacy ***.

    When she signs in - she sees my account photo - and if I go to Account Info is shows her name - Alsion - but with my email of *** Email address is removed for privacy ***.


    If I then go into Manage my Account - it shows her correct email - *** Email address is removed for privacy ***.

    I can find no way around this.


    The main issue is if I change her account photo - it changes mine as well!

    So total confusion.


    Anyone know how to sort this?

    My first thought was to log off her MS account - but I can find a way to do that.

    Another suggestion was to log in to a local account - but there is no option to do that either.


    Many thanks

    Andrew

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown Windows 10 Account Problems :(

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
