    Unlink Corporate Account

    I have added my corporate mail to the Mail app and now wish to unlink the account due to the password restrictions forced on to other users of this PC. I have removed it from the app but I still appear to be under control of my work domain. Certain areas around the settings lead me to believe this such as "Some settings are managed by your system administrator." on the top of the Users portion of the Settings App. How do I completely cut all ties with my corporate account? The goal is a no password log on.

    Hello Jarrett, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you mean that you no longer wish to use a Microsoft account, then the tutorial below can help show you how to switch your account to be a local account instead to no longer have your email address tied to the account.

    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 8

    Hope this helps,

    No I do wish to log in to Windows using a Microsoft account ( email address) and also have a local account with short or no password for my wife. The corporate account that I am trying to un-link is an exchange/active sync type account that requires a complex log in. The same account requires that I have Numeric pin to unlock my android phone.
