Windows 10: Log on problem

    Log on problem

    I changed Windows 10 log on to use my Microsoft account. However, when I boot up, the log on screen displays two accounts with the same user name. The default account doesn't use the new password or pin. I have to switch to the second account name to log on. In account settings, I have set sign-in options to never. How can I delete one of the accounts (but not the one that uses my Microsoft account)?

    Hello JAG01, :)

    It sounds like you may have Windows set to still automatically sign in to the old account at startup.

    If so you can either set up netplwiz again for this account instead, or check the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer box to turn it off.
