Joining an organization will give you access to its resources and network. When you enroll in a school or get hired by a company, the IT admin will create a work or school account for you as your way into the organization’s network. You can then use it to access restricted files, documents, archives, processes, and more content exclusive only with your organization.
Once you have your personal work or school account, Windows will connect your device to the organization’s network. To join in, you can log in using your username and password. However, there are also access restrictions linked to your work or school account based on your IT admin.
There comes a time when you have to leave your organization. By doing so, your IT admin will remove your access and assignments on the organization’s network. In most cases, your IT admin will also require you to delete your work or school account from your Windows 10 or 11 computer.
