  • Do you mean an account in Active Directory Domain Services, or do you mean your Microsoft Account (the one you used to post this question)?

    To delete your Microsoft Account email fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com. Provide a link to your account profile.

  • Remove-ADUser -identity "" -Confirm:$false ----> cmdlet removes an Active Directory user. You can run this command in the windows powershell

    Identity:- It can be distinguished name or samaccountname or userprincipal name

    To verify, run get-aduser -identity ""

    You can bulk remove users via CSV/txt file 

    In TXT file paste all the users samaccount name > Save the txt file and open powershell >Navigate to the folder where the txt is saved

    -  .\delete.txt | foreach-object {remove-aduser -identity $_ -confirm:$false}

  • I want to completely delete my account,
    That's pretty vague. If your forums profile then do as Richard suggests, email fissues. If your microsoft account you can use the links at bottom of this page to email or chat with someone.

  • As you are asking in Directory Services forum then I assume that this is related to your AD setup. If such, you just need to open dsa.msc and remove the account. If the account is protect against accidental removal then you can go to the account properties and disable the protection. If you are referring to another account, please clarify your question.

  • Hi,

    Assume you want to permanently delete AD user account and have AD recycle bin enabled in Domain controller.

    To remove AD accounts from recycle bin use the following:

    Get-ADObject -filter {isdeleted -eq $true -and name -ne “Deleted Objects”} -includeDeletedObjects -property * | Remove-ADObject

    Best Regards,

    Alvin Wang
