    Selling PC Want to delete main account


    I have Win 10 pro on my other PC. I want to delete the Microsoft account before I sell it. How do I do this? I not want to start over & reinstall Windows 7 & make a new account before I sell it. I have fresh install now but it used my email addy to log into windows. Also If this can be done will it still be activated or go into 30 day use?

    Hello DrSysop,

    Since you are going to sell the PC, I would recommend to reset Windows 10, and setup a dummy local account and password during Windows setup. This way you can give the sign in details of this account to the new owner for them to use to set up the PC how they like.
