  • If you are an admin then you can make another account an admin as well. Have him get an MS account, logon, then using your account, give him admin permissions. Finally, have him logon and delete your account and profile and he'll be the only admin...

  • Hi,
    Simply login to the system with another Microsoft account or local account (I believe your friend has his own local acount), then go to:
    Settings->Accounts->Your Account
    Select the one you plan on deleting, and choose the "Remove" option. Of course, as mentioned by Jack above, you will need administrator permission to delete an account.
