How to Revert Your Windows 10 Account From Microsoft to a Local One

by May 30, 2016 0 comments

If you are using windows 10 and accidentally or due to some other reason you are using Microsoft account to log in to your Windows, and want to revert back to a local account, then here is the solution.


Converting Your Microsoft Account Back to a Local User

Step 1: In the search panel search for accounts and select “Change your account picture or profile settings” as seen in the screenshot below.



Step 2: When the Account Settings menu opens you’ll see your currently activated email address.  Below that you’ll find a link,  labeled “Sign in with a local account instead”. Click on that link.


Step 3: A screen will open,  asking for your current password which is associated with your Microsoft account. Enter the password and click “Next”.



Step 4: Enter a new local username and password, click “Next”.



Step 5: Click “Sign out and finish” and you are done. The last page is just a confirmation and a reminder that this will only change the local login and not your Microsoft account.
