Hi, I would like to delete a Teams account from my personal account. I am unable to sign into Microsoft 365 admin center as I do not have a work or school account. How do I delete a Teams account incorrectly created? I have checked out many Q&As and noticed there are many people experiencing this unresolved issue. Please advise ASAP.

    Hi @Nas

    Closing a Microsoft account means you won’t be able to use it to sign in to any Microsoft products or services, including Outlook.com or Hotmail, OneDrive, Xbox, Skype, Office or Microsoft 365, Rewards and Microsoft Certification.

    Sign in to start closing your Microsoft personal account. Close account

    If you're prompted to sign in and/or verify your account, follow the instructions.

    Check that the page shows the correct Microsoft account, and then click Next.

    Read the list and click the checkboxes to acknowledge you’ve read each item.

    Choose to have the re-open window set to 30 or 60 days.

    In the Select a reason drop-down list, choose an explanation for why you're closing the account.

    Click Mark account for closure.
