Windows 10: Added a second user by mistake. Solved

  1.    06 Apr 2016 #1

    Added a second user by mistake and cannot delete.

    Somehow I added a second user by mistake and cannot access due to password incorrect on boot up. It tries to log into this incorrect email address and says wrong password try again.
    I was trying to remove the login function. I typed in netplxiz and put the wrong email account. Now when I start it tries to log in from this email account but with password incorrect. When I click on other options both accounts appear on bottom left. I can access my account through the original account, but cannot get rid of the accidental account. I am using win 10 home. This second account does not appear in control panel user account it only shows my main Microsoft login account.

    Any suggestions.

    Do you have system restore enabled? If so, try that.
