    first sorry if my english is not good!.
    my laptop was recently free upgrade to window 10 with no user and password yet, just administrator. Then when i open microsoft store and trying to download some game it require me to create an microsoft account. I did register one using google email but this account automatic became my new name for old administrator account and always ask for password when the screen is lock. Now i want to remove this account and go back to when the laptop just have administrator with no password and name.

    Hello Channha, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can use the method in the tutorial below to switch back to a local account.

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html

    What happened is that you switched your account from a local account to Microsoft account by mistake when you signed in to the Store with your Microsoft account.

    After you switch back to a local account, you can use the method in the tutorial below to sign in to the Store with your Microsoft account, but still have a local account in Windows 10.

    Interesting.

    Are you able to create a new local account, change its type to be an administrator, then delete the Microsoft account if you like?

    You might see if you may be able to use one of the options in the first tutorial below to change the account type for it to administrator.

    I used the first option and i can make my new local account to be an administrator but i couldn't delete the other microsoft (administator) account. The system wont let me to do that. The new local account is a new administrator but still can not do anything about the old boss.
    Same thing happend to the second option. When i try to change my local account from standard user to administrator, the small box "Change Account Type" will hidden and i can not click on it to save the change.
