    Hello Channha, and welcome to Ten Forums.

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

    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?

    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.
