remove other accounts in windows 10

HP Recommended
HP elite small form 6000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Community,

   I have an HP elite small frame 6000,  OS of Windows 10 Pro, that I had to restore to a different time.     I had other users that were family  members on my computer, i would like to delete all of the other users and just keep my administrator account only.    I have been looking online and tried a number of procedures but what is described as the removal process will not work ( does not show the other users in a list to remove ).      I sure hope that someone in the community has a link or instructions to remove the other user accounts from my computer.

 

Thanks

Beep01

Access "Settings".

Access "Accounts".

Under "Set up and manage accounts" should be the text:

 ... to change an account name, delete an account ...

 

which should do it.

Hello mdklassen

 thanks for the email, and the instructions, BUT,  i tried that and I know there are 4 other user accounts plus one other administrators account that has a password to log on.   I have my main account that is not password protected that i use all the time that does not need a password.    when i go to settings / accounts then to / family and friends  only one user account is displayed  that is the one i use all the time that is my administrator account.      still puzzled as to where i can find the other 4 user accounts that are on my computer.     if any other ideas i would be greatful.

        I am going to send you 5 kudos anyway.

       Thanks

If you logon to that account, can you view/delete the other accounts?

Hello     mdklassen,

     thank you for your response,   for your question , NO, it does not matter what way i log on ,with my existing administrator account.  The only account that shows up is my log in name and that its an administrators account,  no other accounts show up at all so I can delete them.   I can not find the other user accounts on my computer anywhere.  ( REALY CONFUSED AT THIS POINNT )

Thank You,

Beep01

Me, too!   :LaughingTears:

 

However you have done it, you have been successful at deleting those accounts.  :Wink:

 

Look into the 'C:\USERS' folder on your computer.

For each current account, there should be one folder.

Correct?

If you see only your own folder, and you do not see any other folders, there are no other accounts on your computer.
