I had a snafu during Windows setup where I initially created my Windows install using my Microsoft account. However, the install created a user profile name that didn't match older machines which caused lots of of broken file links etc. To restore my original user and account name I created a new local account, then removed the original account that was linked to my Microsoft account.
Everything is working with the local account, but I'd like to go back to using a Microsoft Account for logging in and syncing Windows machines and profiles now that my profile is properly named.
However I seem to be unable to do so. I removed the Microsoft account, but I continue to see that user listed in user list:
The Computer -> User Manager doesn't show the user, nor is there a Profile in
c:\users on disk or in the User Profiles listed. Notice that there is no option to Remove the user from the Family & other people form. There was a Remove option initially and I used that to remove all data, but the result is what's shown in the image above.
With this account there and because it shows with my Microsoft email address, I can't switch to my Microsoft login for the new local account that I'd like to switch. It doesn't have the option to Switch to Microsoft Account:
So, any ideas on what needs to happen to completely remove the original now unused account so that it is no longer visible to Windows?
