How to Delete local user accounts on Windows 10?

Q. After having issues with Win 10 taskbar, which still dosen’t function normally, I allowed a MS tech access to my PC. To correct the taskbar issue, he created another User account as administrator, stating that the original user account was probably corrupted.

Not all user accounts can access all programs and files. Can I delete all user accounts and have only the administrator account with total access to every function of my PC? I do not have a need for multiple user accounts.                

OS: Windows 10 Home Edition CPU: Intel 2.80GHz RAM: 3.00 GB System Type: 32-bit OS, x 64-based processor
