Step Three: In the Settings dashboard, select Users and Accounts. It will have a picture of the current user’s avatar on the left-hand side. There will be several options in this folder, so scroll down to the bottom tab labeled Users.

Step Four: There will be a catalog of the users on the console, each with a trash can next to it. Highlight the trash can next to the account being deleted. Press X and select OK from the Delete User menu to remove the account. Keep in mind that any screenshots, videos, and saved data belonging to this account will also be removed.
