    Switch to MS Account in WIN 10 - Tutorial

    I was looking at the tutorial in re: to Switching to a MS Account from a local account.
    My problem is I have a built-in "Administrator account" that cannot be switched to a MS Account (your warning). What can I do to move on? I imagine add a dummy local account?:)
    You write detailed tutorials.

    Hello Tony, :)

    That's correct.

    If you don't already have another administrator account on the PC that you could switch to a Microsoft account, you could add a new Microsoft account on the computer, and make it an administrator.
