Hello,

you may find this under PC settings > accounts.
tap your account then disconnect.

This should disconnect your Microsoft Account from the tablet, which should disconnect you from onedrive but everything else linked to this account to.

@Xlphos, when doing so, would I lose anything important such as certain files?

You shouldn't lose the data unless you drop/cancel the account. Just disconnecting from it should not do that.

If you create a new windows user account with a different email address you can setup a new MS onedrive account. Just leave the onedrive app connected to the correct account and switch Windows user accounts to switch between them.
