    log in changed

    Windows 10 usually logs in with the name I assigned to my computer "Charlee" (with no password) Today I used my microsoft e-mail account to download an application. When I restarted the computer, the screen log in changed. Now "Charlee" is gone, and "rubs@xxxxx.com" appears instead requiring the password. I have disable the email accoun login through user control, but the problem still persists. When I restart, it requires to choose between my e-mail ("rubs@xxxxx.com") password or RUBS password. "Charlee" is GONE. Can anybody help me? How can I just restart my computer in order for Charlee" to appear in the login?

    By the way your Reg file did not work for me

    Hello mudum, :)

    It sounds like you switched your local account to a Microsoft account. This was most likely from being asked to sign in to your Microsoft account when you opened some app that uses a Microsoft service.

    The .reg file would not have worked for that since it wasn't related to your issue.

    If you like, you can switch you account back to a local account.


    Afterwards, use OPTION TWO below to sign in to the Store with your Microsoft account instead. This way you will still sign in to Windows with your local account.
