Default Win10 & Microsoft account

Hey everyone. I'm having an issue with Win10 and the Microsoft account.

I setup my xbone to stream to my W10 PC and that required that i use my MS account, fair enough. but now i have the issue that my entire admin account is not attached to my MS account. the password has changed, the account name has changed and its quite infuriating. Friggen thing...

Anyways, does anyone know how i can restore the old login admin account with the original 32Charecter password i had it at? I don't want my PC to be connected to my MS account in this way... it didn't even notify me it was doing this..

Thanks for the help.

Your old account is basically in a disabled state now AFAIK. If you remove the MS Account, it'll revert back.

Not sure of any other way of doing it for a home user. I know on Enterprise joined to a Domain, you can keep your Domain credentials while "adding" your MS account to it so all the Store apps work, but you don't log into your machine with the MS account.

Log out the ms account from the computer and use local account for login. Or you can bypass password via ntpasswd or ophcrack.
