Delete User Account in Windows 10
Windows 10 makes it really easy to Create Local User Accounts, which allows two or more people to use a computer with their own sign-in credentials, files, apps, and settings.
Similarly, it is easy to Delete User Accounts in Windows 10, if you are no longer using a particular User Account.
Deleting a User Account will permanently remove the User Account from your computer, along with all the Files associated with the User and you will no longer be able to login to the User Account.
The other option is to Delete User Profile, which also deletes all Files associated with the User, but leaves a blank User Account that you can Login to and reuse.
Note: In order to Delete User Accounts, you need to login to your Admin Account or a User Account with Admin privileges.
