    Can't delete user account
    Are you refering to removing the control panel add/remove user or you want to delete the user folder?

    A:

    1) Open Settings

    2) Click or tap Accounts

    3) Then family & other users

    4) Click the account in question then remove

    5) Then click okay if a UAC prompt appears then delete account

    You can change the account to standard account by clicking account type

    B:

    1) Windows Key+X

    2) Control panel

    3) User Accounts

    4) Add/remove user accounts

    5) Select the user account in question

    6) Delete and you should get the prompt whether or not if you want to keep the files.

    7) The delete on both prompts should they appear

    If not go to C:\Users and locate the user you created then you can delete the account in question. However you may need to restart the PC / Laptop first to remove any apps or services that may have been using the account previously.

    Alternatively you can turn that guest account into a standard account via:

    1) Windows Key+X

    2) Control panel

    3) User Accounts

    4) Change account type / add / remove user accounts

    5) Then change account type - then choose standard
