    Windows 10 Education ; cant login with personal account


    Hi


    I have recently built a new system and installed Windows 10 and added my user account.


    Due to upgrading the hardware I couldn't find activate using my Windows Insider details and couldn't find detail of my old key.


    I used my Win 10 Education edition university key and my uni login creds.


    All is working fine and both my normal username and my uni user details and shown under email and user accounts the normal one is shown as admin


    My issue is when i try to log into Microsoft Store i cant use my personal normal user account , it wont accept a personal account and goes to a Staffordshire University store page subset of MS apps, and as such I cant download anything of use...


    Any idea ?


    Thanks

    Dean

    :)

    Windows 10 Education Pro


    I've not had an opportunity to test Pro Education edition yet but I am running normal Education on a Hyper-V virtual machine and on dual boot with Pro on a laptop. Basically Education is exactly as Enterprise, meant for domain or Azure AD use. Main differences when compared to Pro are missing Cortana and no possibility to use Microsoft account as initial user account when setting up Windows, although when selecting initial user as local domain user a normal local account will be created which can then be switched to a Microsoft account instead of joining a domain.

    Native Windows apps in Windows 10 Education edition are the same than in Pro edition, Cortana being the only exception.

    If you already have setup Windows 10 Pro on your machines with a customised image I can see no benefits in doing the job again deploying an almost similar OS. This is of course only my personal subjective opinion based on what I know at the moment; I have no knowledge or insight about what additional features (see highlighted part in quote below) Pro Education might be and if they would be reason enough to upgrade to Pro Education.

    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 Education ; cant login with personal account :(

    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:
      Code:
      net user test /del
