Change Cortana Microsoft account RRS feed

  • Question

  • When first setting up Windows 10, I set up Cortana using my Microsoft Account. Since my wife has her own Microsoft account, I wish to change the Cortana Microsoft account to hers. Where & how do I make this change. I want to leave the other applications using my account as we use common files and directories.

  • Hi, 

    You can sign out your account first by click Ask me anything on task bar, then, choose Notes and About Me, click You account name and click to choose Sign out:


    Then, re-configure your Microsoft account. 

    But I have to say, it can be done when you just use Local account to sign in your computer, it seems that if you are using Microsoft account to sign in, you can only use the same microsoft account to configure Cortana.
