    Windows *Store* - Cannot remove additonal account


    I logged into Windows with my son's Microsoft account. I then logged in as myself in the Windows Store. I installed apps that have purchased etc. But if I log myself out of the Microsoft Store, my son is still able to login as me and what's worse is he can use HIS PIN to log in as me. I can't find anywhere to remove my login from the store.


    To make this clear, this is in the Microsoft Store, if he logs out then there is a list of accounts to log in, one is mine, one is his. I want to remove my account from this listing. HOW? Why does it accept HIS PIN into my account?


    I have seen suggestions such as: login to https://account.microsoft.com and manage devices and remove PC from list. THIS DOES NOT WORK. And seems overkill anyways if it did.

    :)

    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

  3. Remove Microsoft account from Windows store

    Hi, Abbas.

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, I understand your concern and we will try to assist you the best way we can.

    As per your query, I am led to believe that you want to remove your Office PC from the list of devices that you have configured to Windows Store.

    If that is the case then, I suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Open Windows Store, click on the symbol that contains your username.

    2. Locate and click on View Account, this will redirect you to the
    Microsoft account page.

    3. On the page, click on Devices.

    4. Now select the Device that you wish to remove and click on Remove PC.



    Hope this information helps.
