    Hi there

    Done and dusted - restored -- now it's working with local account. I'm sure though Ms will have to address the security issue of leaving the email displayed on the lock screen though - especially in a large corporate environment where 100's of people often outside personnel can walk through offices etc.

    Cheers

    I would like to think that most enterprises uses windows domain AD users not MS accounts

    At home environment where MS account is used on windows 8.1 I just added windows credentials in credential manager with user name and password to connect to network share.

    In a large corp environment, we have 17k users I think that counts, it does not display email. It displays username and domain information generally like this...

    UserName
    Domain\UserName
    [password box]

    I made a big boo boo of switching to an Ms account from a local account -- now if I want to switch back again to a LOCAL account I can't use the same username -- so now my access is TOTALLY hosed up on shared drives across my entire network as the username is now different. I have some LINUX SAMBA servers too - so I don't want to have to re-configure all those too as well. Grhhhhh!!!!!!!
    As usual Jimbo, you over react, freak out, and assume the worst... then refuse to listen when people tell you to calm down and explain why your assumptions are incorrect... You have a two-stop process here. First you have to rename it to a different account, then you can rename it back to your original. Good to know something don't change

    By the way this is the same way it works in Windows 8 and 8.1.

    The reason for this, is that when you associate the account with the MS account, you are actually keeping your original account.. if you go to Computer Management, and look under Local Users and Groups, you will see the old account still there. Disassocating renames the account, and you can't rename to the same name... so it has to be renamed to something else. Then you can rename it back to the original.

    And again, you make more assumptions. Windows already addresses this. When joined to a domain, it does not use the email like that. It will retain the username if the screen is locked, but not when you log off. BTW, you can associate a MS account with a Windows Domain account, and it doesn't quite work the same way either...

    I don't mind the whole MS Account thing because I have three PCs in different apartments (one city: where I live; another city: where I work; yet another city: where I holiday) and I know that when I log on anywhere I'll be up to date everywhere
