Windows 10: Problems Switching Accounts

    Problems Switching Accounts


    I switched to a local account but cannot switch back to a MS account. I go through the loops of putting in my email addess and password then authorising it on my phone but nothing changes at all.

    I am using build 10240 and have not had any problems logging on.

    Anyone with experience or advice on how to login with my MS account as standard again?

    thanks

    I created one of each and switch between them as needed rather than keep changing the one account from MS to local and back/

    just go to settings => your account => sign in with local account instead => type confirmation password with MS account => now type password with local account => signout

    I think its the opposite that I want to do, I am automatically logged in with my local account, when I try to log in with my MS account I enter my email then MS password, approve the sms code for logging in but stay in my local account.
    It will not switch to the MS account.
