I just replaced my old Windows 8 computer and want to give the old one to my son. Once I'm done transferring everything over and deleting all my programs and data how do remove my Microsoft account? I want all my info off so he can setup his own account.

Finally got around to setting up the computer for my son today. Everything went OK. :) Now when he gets home he can have all the fun of installing and setting up all his programs.
