I recently deleted my iCloud account and forgot to remove it from my iMac first.
Now I'm getting persistent notifications on my Mac asking me to fix the problem. However, to fix this, I have to remove the account. I cannot remove the account because it requires a password. When I enter the password, "Account not found" (or something similar) is displayed.
I called Apple Support and recommended creating a new user account and deleting the old one. Since I've set up a very complex user account (I work as a software developer), this is a crazy effort.
Is there a way to easily remove this account from my computer? Or is there an easier way to completely migrate my entire user account to a new user account without losing anything? (Including configurations in places like
~/.bash_profile, Desktop wallpaper, mouse scroll sensitivity, key repeat speed, etc.
If the Apple account removal solution is fairly technical, I don't mind. I would prefer, if at all possible, not to have to create a new user account on my computer.
