    User Accounts - After Upgrading to Windows 10

    In File Explorer, now has FOUR accounts, specifically, Default, Default Migrated, K, and Public. K should have been my personal user account which was set up under Win 8.1. What are these other accounts doing, why do I need them and how can I remove them? Thanks!

    You can delete Default.migrated. Just right click and delete on the folder under C:\Users should work if you are an administrator. It is the copied version of the old Default profile that you had before upgrade.

    Default is used when making new profiles as a template. Public is expected to be there by some programs and features (for example Hyper-V). You should leave these two alone.
