On Windows 8.1 RIGHT click on the windows decal in the lower right corner and from the menu that pops up select COMMAND PROMPT (administrator). A black box pops open and in that box type NET USER and hit enter ALL the users on that computer will list and you need to find the one that you want to remove. Then TYPE NET USER followed by the name of the account the forward slash delete and hit enter.

    Yes this command works on windows 8.1 you need to do it from an elevated command prompt and you need to be a local administrator. If you are not an administrator you cant delete accounts.

I need help to remove windows 10 and restore windows 8.1

That is not really the best idea. If you are going to remove Win 10, install Win 7 pro instead of 8.x.
It is by far more stable, has all the bugs worked out and all the drivers available for your equipment. 8 was so terrible MS rushed the delivery of 10 to quiet as many of the upset users as they could. For the most part it is pretty good, but being new, it's going to be short of drivers and there are still going to be bugs. 7 Pro will make your life much easier than 8.x.

How do I delete Linkedin from laptop

Well depending on windows version go to programs and features in win 8 win XP -7 add and remove programs. It should show on the list of installed programs. Just select and click uninstall..... If it is not on the list then you are going to have to search for it on you hard drive (usually c:drive) Once you find it see if it contains an uninstall program. If it does not do not attempt deleting it since could cause pc errors. I suggest the using a program such as REVO UNINSTALLER.
Even though the program list in Revo may not show it you can use the hunt feature. Locate the program folder Open Revo put it in hunt mode and drag and drop the program to Revo. Follow instructions and you should be golden. to double check that it has been removed shut down pc/laptop wait 10sec then reboot and check for the program you wanted gone. I hope this helps with a few options should one not work. Note you may find an emty folder left behind with the name of the program you can just simply delete it. Open first to make sure it's empty.

Is there a another way to delete a user account on Windows XP?

Users are deleted in User Accounts, or Local Users and Groups. Not in Documents and Settings.

Make sure you are an Administrator, and not trying to delete active login account. Then delete.

How to reset password

If you can tell us what the os do you use, I can help you reset windows password much better.

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset .

I cannot remember my password to log onto the computer, how can this be remedied?

Try booting into Safe mode, if you can get in, (using win xp), go to control panel / user accounts/ craete new account. Set as admin.
Reboot and open with new account, you can then access the old account to change the password

Or delete the old account and SAVE the files for that account

If you cannot do this, try this link:
