    How to go back to a normal user account instead of microsoft account


    When I signed up for the Cortana to try it out, I had to use my microsoft account.

    I have decided that in my case, I do not want to use Cortana.


    How can I go back to the normal user account?

    Ever since I signed in with the microsoft account, eveyr morning when I wake up I find my computer to be automatically turned off and I have to turn it back on and click the 'sign in' button.

    I want to get rid of that. I do not want my computer to be turned off on its own.

    Can anyone please help me with solving this problem?

    Power Plan Settings - Change in Windows 10 Turn off hibernation and sleep mode and maybe switch to High Performance. I think the default is balanced.
    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10

    Your welcome. There is also this option too, Sign in User Account Automatically at Windows 10 Startup I auto logon my desktop PC. I use a PIN for my laptop though.
