    How do I get back to local account

    I'm a little confused here(which in not too unusual for me). I think that I somehow got the MS account and had to change my password. How do I get back to local account.

    Hey Frank,

    You can use the same method below for Windows 8 to do so in 10 to switch from a Microsoft account to a local account. :)

    Thanks, Shawn--that worked. Next time I see you, I'm buying the beer--or coffee whichever you prefer.
