How To Remove Account From Windows 10

Windows 10 allows users to add multiple users in a single computer so that one can easily share a system without having to log in and out multiple times. This is great for work and at home. But what if you want to remove the Microsoft account of someone who doesn’t use it anymore?

Worry not, as it is quite easy to do so. Follow the below steps for removing Microsoft account from Windows 10:

  1. Open Settings on Windows 10

    Click on the Start button and on the bottom left, click on the Settings icon to open Settings.

  2. Go to Accounts

    Now click on the Accounts option. Under Accounts, you will find ‘Family and other users’. Click on that. This will show you accounts of your family members as well as other members that aren’t part of your family.

  3. Removing Account – First Step

    For this demo, we are going to remove “Mr. X” from our computer. Even though Mr. X has a local account, this step is the same for people that are signed in with their Microsoft Accounts.

  4. Removing Account – Final Step

    Now click on the user you want to remove and click “Remove” button on the right side.

    Note: This step does not delete data stored on Microsoft’s servers, such as files on OneDrive, Windows 10 personalization settings, app purchase, and more.

Congrats! You have successfully removed a Microsoft account from your Windows 10 PC.
