    Hi Folks,

    I'm running Windows 10 Home edition
    When I log into Windows, i get a notification about account issues.
    I click through and I'm brought to the following screen to resolve.
    see screenshot here https://ibb.co/r4CCH5V
    When I click Fix Now, I attempt to enter my personal email address but then I get "You can't sign in here with a personal account. Use your work or school account instead".
    This is my personal laptop. I have logged into microsoft applications using my work and university credentials in the past so i'm guessing that's something to do with it. Any idea how to get around this? I know I could sign in with my work credentials but have a separate computer for work business and want to keep my laptop personal.

    Thanks

    Login to Windows with your personal account if you need to use Office, use Office 365 online and login in with your work email.

    It will keep them seperate.
