    Cannot Sign Out Of Office 365

    Right this is the most stupid problem I have ever had, and Microsoft support were just impossible to deal with.

    I have installed Office 365 on 3 PC's, 2 are running Windows 8, 1 is running Windows 7.

    I don't like being connected to things all the time to be honest, yeah the internet thats ok, but I dont feel my programs need to be, I just don't feel comfortable with it, so in Word I went to Account and Sign Out and it amazingly just says "We can't remove Windows accounts". Great so I cannot sign out at all.

    Not even Microsoft know whats going on, does anyone know how to sign out?

    Further to that the Windows 7 computer is not signed in so no worries there, I can only assume all this has to do with the Microsoft Account on the Windows 8 machines but even so this is a bit silly.

    Try this method to sign out of Office 365
    If so, please try the following steps to check if the problems persist:

    1. Quit all Office applications, and type "Credential Manager" in the search box, click Windows credentials and remove all credentials of Microsoft Office.

    2. Sign out of this account first and sign into your work computer with the Office 365 account that you want to use on this computer.

    Let me know if this works for you!

    Please guys,while it's lovely that people are looking to help others, its always worth checking the date the question was asked before typing.
    In this case the reply was stuck in our spam filter, as it screams spam. Over 7 year old thread with a new member replying.
