    How to logout from windows 10


    I really don't understand why I cannot logout from my PC.

    Basically, This is my work PC, I'm the hidden admin account, and yesterday, as a mistake, i signed in with my personal email address to the xbox app.

    Now, i'm logged in with that email everywhere on this PC and I don't want to!!

    How do I logout completely? there's no delete account button as there's only one account, the admin one, but my personal email is registered to the admin account and I just want the admin account to have no email at all and all my personal stuff to be unsynced.

    Please help!

    Thanks a lot

    Hello nikimola,

    By signing into your account with the same email as Xbox you have effectively converted your login to a Microsoft account login.

    Have a look at the following tutorial which will show you how you can go back to a local account.

    Unfortunately, I don't have that option on my account manager:

    That's odd!

    In which case you will have to create a new local account, copy any files you need from your previous account and then delete the old one.
