Windows 10: Signed in to Mail app - now account is my Windows Email account Solved

    Signed in to Mail app - now account is my Windows Email account


    Hi,

    Upgraded from Windows 7 to Win 10 and was loving it (was). Saw there was a mail app and thought that would be pretty handy. Signed in and since then, I have to log in to my PC as my email address and password.

    I don't want that.

    How do I revert my existing user back to a non-Windows live user, with a normal, local account and password?

    I am happy to not use the Mail app if that's what it takes, but my concern is that the profile I have now has all my icons and docs and stuff and I don't want to go through the hassle of copying over the profile.

    There must be a way to undo this change, but I can't find it.

    Thanks

    Awesome, thank you so much.

    Stupid that you can't get to that screen you showed from Control Panel / User Accounts (at least, I couldn't find that there and had to search for Accounts to find it).

    Also 10/10 for the redacting and highlighting... I do it the same way at work :)

    Again, thank you!!

    Control Panel is gradually being replaced with the Settings App.
