    Made a Microsoft Account Need To Remove Login


    Hello,
    I made a Microsoft account last night to get an app and now there is a login in screen on my computer that was not there before. I am using a new licence of Windows 10 on a new computer and I would like to undo the changes making a Microsoft account made to my computer.
    I read this thread:
    Help Removing Microsoft Account login
    However the solution was not satisfactory. The login screen introduced doubles the startup time of the computer.
    How to remove?

    Hello Donagh, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You could use the tutorial below to set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup using netplwiz.

    Thanks Brink,
    That has fixed the issue however the start up speed has taken a permanent hit with an automatic logon rather than a startup with no logon. I will have to get used to using regedit so I can one day have actual control of my PC.

    How much time are you talking about?

    A startup with no logon is the same as an automatic logon. Do you seen anything different during startup that may account for the time difference?

    There is a blue login screen for a second or two when the computer usually would have gone straight to desktop. It then goes straight to desktop so there is no real issue any more. The problem was solved using the second option of that link you posted.

    A blue screen sounds like it may have been an update that required restart to finish installing.

    I'm glad you got it sorted. :)
