Disable my Windows account/login from a different computer?

Asked by serenityNOW (3636points) October 9th, 2015

Hi y’all! I have a quick tech question: I left my onsite job kind of abruptly. Communication between myself and the former gig just isn’t happening. I have a user account on one of the machines there. I want to disable it. Can I do that remotely? (If it helps, I’m using a Microsoft account to log-in, not a local account.)

Is this your personal Microsoft account that you used on the work computer? I’m which case you can remove the PC from Microsofts account management page

Yeah, it’s Office 365, but my personal. Not a work account.

I’m poking around on the Settings page you referred to me, and all I’m seeing is the laptop I use here at home. Maybe they deleted me. That would be swell.

Ok the settings page I referred you to was for a Microsoft account. There’s a whole different page for office accounts (go figure) try here

Hope that works

Well, I’m still a bit befuddled, but I think I’ll just change my login and password. That I can do remotely.
