    user account change

    Ok, hoping someone can help me.

    i was in process of adding my kids to the pc so they can log into the school website for the homework. now, somehow, the account i am actually on (which is mine) changed the user log on as my sons, meaning his name now has all the software and progs etc (not what is meant to happen) rather than creating a new separate account.
    So, i have tried to change this but unable to revert this sign on as my account, and to simply create another with mine means i lose my work.

    ive googled but all i find is setting up accounts, not exactly what i am after

    is there a way i can revert this log on to mine and then create a new account (again) for my son?

    Change it back to a local account first. Then back to your Microsoft account login:
    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
