How do I remove the Windows 10 account


Open Windows settings

Windows provides two ways to delete a user. Both require you to log in with your admin account. With the first option, open the Windows settings, either via the start menu or, more quickly, with the key combination Windows + i.

Select the user to be deleted

Now navigate to Accounts and select the point in the left window area Family and other users. On the right side see the section Other users the accounts available on the computer. Click on the user to be deleted and then on the Remove button.

Delete account and data

Windows then displays a message that the associated user files - such as documents or downloads - will be deleted along with the account. If you need this, you have to create a backup beforehand. With one click on Delete account and data finally remove the account.

Call up the User Accounts dialog

For the second option, call up the Run dialog using the shortcut Windows Key + R use. In the Open field, type netplwiz and click on OK or press Enter.

Windows now starts the dialog User accounts. Make sure that the check mark in front of this window B.Users must enter their username and password is set. Otherwise the buttons below are deactivated.

Remove user

Now mark the user you want to delete and click on the button Remove. Here, too, as with the first method, Windows displays a warning that you confirm by clicking the Yes button. Finally, you can use the still open window User accounts also close with the OK button. (ad)
