How to Remove User Account from Windows 11

The preferred method for deleting a user account on Windows 11 is through the Settings app since that's the interface that's more actively maintained. The process may actually seem a bit confusing these days because of the many options related to Microsoft accounts, but here's what you need to do.

How to Remove User Account from Windows 11

To remove a user account from Windows 11, you'll need administrative privileges on the computer. Follow these steps:

Open Settings:

Click on the "Start" button (Windows icon) on the taskbar or press the "Windows" key on your keyboard. Then click on the "Settings" gear icon (looks like a gear) to open the Settings app.=


In the Settings window, click on the "Accounts" category.

Accounts & Family:

On the left sidebar, select "Accounts & Family."

Other users:

Under the "Accounts used by other apps" section, you'll see a list of other users on the system. Click on the user account that you want to remove.


After selecting the user account, a menu will expand. Click on the "Remove" button.


A confirmation window will appear, asking if you want to delete the user account and its data. If you're sure, click the "Delete account and data" button.

Administrator Approval:

If you're not logged in as an administrator, you'll need to provide administrator credentials or confirm the action through an administrator account.

Account Deletion:

Windows will proceed to remove the user account and its associated data. This might take a moment.


Once the process is complete, you'll be brought back to the "Other users" section in the Settings. The user account you removed should no longer be listed.

Remember, deleting a user account will remove all the files and settings associated with that account. Make sure you have backups of any important data before proceeding with this process. Additionally, be careful when removing user accounts, especially if you're working with an administrator account, as this can impact system access and data security.
