How To Remove User From Windows 10


I recently faced a scenario in which I had to remove a user from my Windows 10 operating system. It can be frustrating when you need to make changes to your computer, but do not fret, as I am here to assist you with the steps to remove a user from Windows 10.

Step 1: Accessing the Control Panel

The first step is to access the Control Panel. To do this, click on the Start button and then select the “Settings” option. From there, click on the “Accounts” option and then select “Family & other users” in the left-hand menu.

Step 2: Managing User Accounts

Once you are in the “Family & other users” section, you will see a list of user accounts on your computer. Scroll down to locate the user account that you want to remove and click on it.

Step 3: Remove the User Account

After selecting the user account, you will see several options. Click on the “Remove” button to initiate the process of removing the user from your Windows 10 system.

Windows will then prompt you to confirm the removal. It’s essential to double-check that you have selected the correct user account before proceeding.

Step 4: Save Files and Delete Account

Removing a user account in Windows 10 gives you the option to save or delete the user’s files. If you want to save their files, select the “Keep files” option. Windows will then save the user’s files to a folder on your desktop, allowing you to access and transfer them later.

If you don’t need to keep the user’s files, select the “Delete files” option. This will remove the user’s account and all associated files from your computer.

Step 5: Completing the Removal

After making your selection, click on the “Delete account and data” button to complete the removal process. Windows will delete the user account and any files associated with it.

It’s important to note that removing a user from Windows 10 will permanently delete their files, so make sure to back up any important data before proceeding with this step.


Removing a user from Windows 10 can be a straightforward process if you follow these steps. Remember to double-check that you have selected the correct user account before deleting it, and consider backing up any important files before proceeding. By taking these precautions, you can ensure a smooth and successful removal process.
