How to Delete My Acer Account

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Acer computers come with the Windows user account management tool, which lets you delete user accounts associated with the Acer laptop or desktop computer. To delete user accounts, you must be logged into your Acer computer as an administrator. This gives you full access to the user account manager. You cannot delete the Windows administrator account; this is required to operate the Windows operating system.

Click the Windows "Start" button and click "Control Panel." Click "User Accounts and Family Safety."

Click "User Accounts." Click "Manage Accounts."

Click the user account for your Acer computer that you want to delete. A sidebar will open.

Click "Delete Account." Choose whether you want to delete the files associated with the account or keep them. If you choose to keep them, the user-account-specific files will be added to a folder with the deleted account's username.

Click "Delete Account" again to permanently remove the account from your Acer computer.
