    Open the People App, under the search bar there is a line which has "Showing some accounts". If you click/tap on this then you will have a window in which you can deselect any accounts that you do not want to appear in the App.


    You may not see the link if you have all your accounts on view. However, if you go into settings it will allow you to "filter contact list". You can also delete accounts from here too.

    Thank you philc43. That does the trick. However, I have now realised that you have to go to the Mail App to completely remove an account.

    Yes, that is correct and remember that you will not be able to delete the Microsoft account that you login with.

    Actually, you can remove other accounts from the People App but you have to go into Settings to do this. (accessed by clicking on the three dots icon next to the add icon for adding new people.
