Windows 8.1 remove Microsoft Account

Migrating to Windows 8.1 in a Corporate environment. During original setup, I created the Microsoft Live/Hotmail sign-in so I could do some initial software installs. Once the IT department got involved, they created another user account which utilizes my domain/network credentials. It's the only thing I will ever sign on with now, so I have no use or desire for the Microsoft Account, but it still exists. Is there a way to remove it entirely like it never happened? At the very least, when I boot the machine I would like it to bring me directly to my domain user account sign in screen every time (but not auto login). Just to clarify - there's no need to actually delete or eliminate the MS email account I created. I just want it out of my OS installation.

Can you click on the desktop app or....

windows key + c -------> click on the "Search Icon" --------> type: lusrmgr.msc -----> hit Enter --------> Click on "Users" -------> Select the local account you want to delete -------> right- click "Delete"

You should see Local Users and Groups; plus when you type: lusrmgr.msc you can click the icon as well.

Hope this helps
Note: If you are not able to perform those actions then you will need to be part of the Domain Admins group.  Speak with IT personnel....
