    How to remove adminstrator identity

    I just purchased a new PC for my condo office. I made the mistake of using my personal email address when I set it up. Now my personal files can be seen on this machine. Is there any way to remove my identity from the machine?

    Hello jaykay, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You could switch your account to be a local account instead of a Microsoft account.

    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10

    Another option it to create a new local account on the computer, make it an administrator, sign in to that account, and delete your account using your Microsoft account.

    User Account - Add in Windows 10

    Account Type - Change in Windows 10

    User Account - Delete in Windows 10
