Windows 10 – Revert Your User Account to a Local One

Windows 10 is here and it is here to stay and along with it comes the almost forceful push to using a Microsoft Account. When you first buy your new Windows 10 device you are bombarded with the Sign In with your Microsoft Account. You can in fact just login in the old fashion way and login with a simple username and password even though Microsoft would rather you login with a Microsoft account so you can sync all your goodies while also allowing them to track what you do more.

If your Windows 10 user account is currently a Microsoft account (by choice or because you got roped into it) it is easy to revert it back to a local account if you know where to look. Read on as I show you.

Why Do This?

There are benefits to using a Microsoft account as your login but many people prefer to have their Windows login as a totally separate experience and entity from any online accounts they might have.

I have noticed a super annoying way that your local user account is automatically (without your permission) converted into a Microsoft account. Of which is when you first log into the Windows Store on your new Windows 10 PC your local user account (called “Ninja”) gets switched over seamlessly to whatever email address you use for your Microsoft account (say “whatTheHell@gmail.com”). This Microsoft account can be one you created for several reasons. Maybe you have a Hotmail email or you use the Microsoft Office Suite of software.

A scenario that can happen is when someone who isn’t you logs into the Windows Store then it converts your local user account to a Microsoft account with their login credentials. You then will end up needing their password to undo the mess. If the computer is logged off, goodness, you then cannot get into the computer until you get their password. It is a very poor and quite underhanded way to get people to use a Microsoft-style login instead of the old way to login.


Reverting Your Microsoft Account Back to a Local User

If you’ve had a Microsoft account for a while and you want to switch it back to a local user. If you had a crazy and annoying experience where the Windows Store or some other App hijacked your entire user account, the way to reverse everything is pretty easy if you know where to look.

On the Windows 10 PC in question,  goto the Accounts menu. You can do so in alot of ways but the fastest way is to simply type “accounts” in the search box on the Windows 10 start menu and select “Change your account picture or profile settings” as in the screenshot above.

When the Account Settings menu opens you will see in the screenshot to the left the email address of the now active Microsoft Account (top arrow). Below you will find a link saying “Sign in with a local account instead”.

Click on that link.

Confirm the account again and you will also be required to plug in the password. Click “Next”.



Enter a new local username and password (or the old username and password you had before things got all freaky). Click “Next”.



The last box is a confirmation and a reminder of some details you should read for you information. Click “Sign out and finish”. Now I did notice after signing out and going back to a local account didn’t change anything with the Windows Store app and I was still logged in under my Microsoft user account. Why couldn’t Microsoft had just allowed you to login to the Windows Store in the first place???????

THE BACKSPACE KEY – GOOGLE CHROME’S TYPED INFO KILLER

You like using Chrome cause Internet explorer just sucked to you right and while you are filling in a form to register your info to that cool social media website and you make a mistake. You hit the backspace key and for some reason the browser goes back to a previous page. You are a little surprised and confused and you find out eventually all of that typing you did is now lost and you have to fill the form out again. You are now frustrated.Well you are not alone cause this happened to alot of people and soon your frustrations will be alleviated. Google Chrome is fixing the issue. In Chrome’s next big release it is removing the shortcut that has the “backspace” key returning you to the previous page.  To be more specific, as in the example I mentioned latter while filling out a form if you were not focused in the text box that you were typing in, Chrome interpreted the backspace key as a “back” button which would cause you to lose all of the data you had just entered.

Engineers from Google say that years of user complaints have finally pushed them to get rid of the shortcut. Well some more hardcore users have complained about it but Google said that the numbers and the ease of the change prove it worth the move.

Google product manager, Tyler Odean writes, “We’re definitely aware of the frustration that this causes users who have come to rely on the shortcut…… However for users who *don’t* understand the behavior of the shortcut, which is the majority of users, the loss of data is also super frustrating and they are less equipped to understand or prevent their frustrations.”

BUT……. People who still want the shortcut to stay can either use alternates (alt+left arrow on Windows, command+left arrow on Mac) or install a Chrome extension that brings it back again.  So you have until late July to decide when the fix will officially roll out.
