    Delinking Microsoft account from bulit in administrator account

    Hi, I'm sorry I was using a Chinese version of windows 10 at work, so could not find much information about what I need.
    My personal microsoft account somehow got linked to the windows 10 administrator account. If I create another administrator account and try to delete the original administrator account, it doesnt let me do it. I just want to delink my ms account from the computer.
    Anyone has any clues?

    The first account created, by default, will be a member of the administrators group. Is that what is concerning you? What do you mean by linked to the Windows 10 Administrators account? The built in main system administrators account is hidden and disabled by default.

    Hello lennyli, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    In addition, you can switch your Microsoft account on the PC to a local account to no longer have it linked to the account on the PC.
