Since the first user that you create during Windows 8/Windows 8.1 installation is an administrator account, you cannot easily remove it from the computer until you have either enabled the built-in Administrator account, or you have created any other account and have added it to the Administrators group. If you have not created any local account and have created a Microsoft account during the OS installation, it is important that you should convert it to local account before you finally delete it from the system. To summarize, you are required to do the following:

  1. Enable the built-in Administrator account or create a new administrator user.
  2. Convert the first administrator account that you created during the Windows 8/Windows 8.1 installation to the local account. (If applicable)
  3. Sign-in to Windows 8/Windows 8.1 using the built-in Administrator or additionally created administrator account.
  4. Remove the first administrator account.

If you want to get the above task done, you must follow the steps given below:

  1. Log on to Windows8/Windows 8.1 using the manually created administrator account.
