    Disable adding email/Microsoft accounts to Windows 10


    Is there a way to prevent people from adding any email/Microsoft accounts to Windows 10?
    I found the option in GPEdit
    Local -> Computer Config -> Windows Settings -> Security Options -> Accounts: Block Microsoft accounts

    I set it to Users can't add Microsoft accounts, ran gpupdate /force and restarted the system.
    Still am able to add email accounts, and a Microsoft one, if indirectly for the later.

    OK. I found an answer.
    You need to modify two registry entries for this to work. Or at least, it is what I needed to do at least.
    First Entry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    Add or modify NoConnectedUser to 3
    Second Entry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PolicyManager\default\Settings\AllowYourAccount
    Add or modify value to 0


    Reboot isnít necessary and it will apply to the current account.
