I'm selling my Laptop with Windows 8.1 on it, and the account is linked to my Microsoft account.
Is there any way I can unlink it on my laptop and change it to a generic user account so the new owner doesn't have access to my cloud and everything else? (Without re-installing Windows)

(Windows + I) -> Change PC Settings -> Update and Recovery -> Restore (the one that says it'll reinstall Windows). Alternatively go there and select the "Advanced recovery" or whatever, it's the last one. This will reboot the computer to the recovery environment. From there, go to Advanced Options and restore from a system image.

I'm also hoping that's the right procedure since Microsoft royally screwed with recovery for DIY people. :T
