    went to Microsoft website and cancelled the account, not on my PC, cant get rid of it

    looks like reinstall

    Microsoft are useless, windows 8 was the worst windows ever, even worse that 2 and I went to the official launch, windows took over 1/2 then 1/4 of the screen very mickey mouse

    but this OS is rubbish full of bugs
    Quite silly, you have screwed up this totally by yourself and start blaming Microsoft.

    To start with, when using a local account you don't have to switch to an MS account just to download apps from store. The correct procedure is told in this tutorial: Store - Sign in with Different Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. That's your mistake number 1, proceeding without fist finding out what's the correct way to do it.

    The mistake number 2, totally, completely profoundly your own mistake and nothing to do with Microsoft was to delete the very same MS account you are currently using to sign in to Windows.

    Reinstall is my recommendation. If, and apparently when you do not know how to do this correctly here are a few tutorials I suggest you read first before proceeding:

    windows never gave me the option to change to a local account, did not work!

    windows is rubbish, not just this, programs hang, crash

    Cubase plays up

    autocad the same

    intelligently deleting the account windows should on seeing account missing recreate it or delete it, not give up
    I reinstated the account but cant change password. its a rubbish OS, no wonder they are giving it away

    a modern OS should recover not screw up

    if I reinstall will not load win10 will stick with 7 as my many other systems

    wait for windows 11 nah wont bother

    and all this rubbish to get some phone users onboard

    Out of interest, were you using the built-in administrator account as your user account?

    For some reason you double posted, your last post is the same you already posted 15 minutes earlier. Please answer the question in my previous post.

    Hi Kari, I have a similar problem, when windows 10 boots up I must log into Hotmail. I don't want to log in to any account when my system starts up and I can't work out how to reverse the log in requirement. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I am not sure if you want to switch to a local account instead of your Microsoft account, or if you want to keep your Microsoft account but login automatically instead of having to type the password.

    See these tutorials:

    The problem is quite weird. If the switch option is not available in Windows GUI Interface, please try the method 2 included in the following article:
    2 Options to Reset Windows 10 Microsoft Account Password
    While resetting the password from a boot CD, it claims the program will also switch your Microsoft account to local account offline. I hope this helps!
