On Windows 11, you can remove a school or work account from the Settings app, but you need to know where to look, and in this guide, you will learn how.
Whenever you add a work or school email account, Windows 11 thinks that the device belongs to an organization, and as a result, it will prevent you from changing certain settings, and you will notice unwanted behaviors when using an email client app, such as Outlook, and you may even get prompts to sign in to the account when you don’t even use it.
If you have any issues with an email account or the computer no longer belongs to an organization, you would usually try to remove it from the Outlook app and then from the “Email & accounts” settings page. However, you will quickly find out that it’s not possible to remove a work or school (.edu) email account from Windows 11.
Whatever the reason it might, Windows 11 allows you to remove the account, but not from the “Email & accounts” settings page. Instead, you have to use the “Access work or school” page.
This guide will teach you the steps to delete a work or school account on Windows 11.
