    Microsoft make it (too) easy to accidentally switch from a local account to a Microsoft account, though usually it's your own account that gets switched to. This Tutorial tells you how to switch back.
    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10

    Once you've switched back your sister won't have a log in on your PC. If you want to let your sister log in in the future, you could create a second account for her. You can even set it up as a Microsoft account. You could also make sure it's a standard account, not an admin. There's a Tutorial for that too.
