Remove an Obsolete Work Account from Email and Accounts in Windows 10

Trying to Delete from Settings -> Email and Accounts

I was trying to “fix a problem with one of my accounts” in Windows when I realized that it was an old work account that was complaining. The problem is that “Email and Accounts” in Windows 10 only provides a “Manage” option, which requires login:

Email and Accounts offers a manage button
Email and Accounts in Windows 10 with a work or school account

The answer: Settings -> Access work or school

This is a pretty simple one but I eventually found the answer here. By going to Settings -> Access work or school, you can [Disconnect]:

Settings -> Access work or school
Settings -> Access work or school

Click on the account that you want to disconnect:

Settings -> Access work or school -> [click account]

Click [Disconnect]:


After clicking [Yes], Windows will churn for a bit and then you should be all done:

All better
All done

Microphone Crackle and Distortion on Windows 10 with New ASUS Motherboard

I’ve had to remedy microphone crackle and distortion twice on two different builds/rebuilds of Windows 10 PCs, and somehow forgot from the last time how to remedy.

In my case, the problem was the onboard sound for the ASUS Motherboard (ASUS ROG Strix B550-E and ASUS ROG Strix B550-A motherboards.) The solution is to get the audio drivers for the Realtek Audio that come on the board and install them (B550-A and B550-E downloads.)
