    I've somehow created a second account and don't know how to remove it.


    Hello, a couple of weeks ago I was trying to eliminate sign in on startup, and ended up creating a second account. It doesn't show up in user accounts, I don't know how to go about removing it. It's annoying, could someone please explain how to remove it? EDIT: I updated on 10/19 (1903Windows PowerShell
