    Welcome screen and user accounts

    Hi !

    I'm little confused about 1 issue i have with windows 8.1.

    Originally there was microsoft account and first i failed to change it to local account and i create new user account, but later i delete it, cause i figure out , that i can change microsoft account to local account.
    But now, at welcome login screen, appears my local account and "other account" too, but i delete it.
    Is there any way to remove this information about my "other user account" from windows or registry ?

    I hope my explanation was good,
    Thanks for any kind of info and help !

    Windows 8.1 64-bit
    I have local account-administrator and full control !
