Hi,
in order to do some tests i created a Microsoft account (never logged in the MS store with it), done some tests logging on some web site , delete the MS Account account.
The problem is that now settings\app or widgets, try to login with the old account i used for test, and when i recevie an error saying that the account does not exist, and i put my real account, it ask me for the app authenticator, i confirm , i choose the correct code, and once again it says the old account it is not existent.

Hi,
yes I forgot.
I already closed my account before posting.
Unless my account was active, i could insert password and login.
PLs note that this was not my primar account, nor windows account.
Now i want to dismiss but windows 11 continue to ask for it.
