Many users have their work and personal account on the same PC. At some point, they want to remove one of them, use the second one, entirely remove an existing account and then add a new one. This post will share methods to remove an old Teams account from Windows PC.
How to Remove an Old Teams Account?
There are two ways to remove an old Teams account from Windows PC. One is where the admin removes it from the company or school, and second, the user chooses to remove it themselves.
- Remove the Account connected with School or Work
- Sign out or remove a personal account from Microsoft Teams
1] Remove the Account connected with School or Work
To get this, you must ask your admin to do this. If you are confused about which organization is connected to your PC, the steps will help you fix the problem. Here are the following steps to find the organization and the steps the admin can take to remove your account.
- Kindly sign in at http://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/ using your account.
- Press your profile tile at the upper-right and pick your Org name under “ORGANIZATION”.
- Executing this will enable you to sign back into your org using the default admin account.
- Post signing in, make a record of “[email protected]***.onmicrosoft.com” email ID. Ordinarily, the *** is supposed to be the Org name. Sign in to.office.com utilizing the mentioned [email protected].***onmicrosoft.com account.
- Ask the admin to sign into office.com, proceed to the Admin panel, and opt for Billing > Subscriptions > Cancel trial.
Note: If your account is not associated with any organization, you will get an access denied warning. Also, you must have admin rights to remove your account and login to the default admin account.
