Unlinking Windows Key on Microsoft Account

I logged a Microsoft Account into Windows 10 for the first time and it automatically linked my account (this email I'm posting with) to my Windows key. The problem is I'm using Windows 10 Education from my university and I want to link my Win10 to that email instead. Is there a way to do this? If not, how do I change which account I sync my PC to?

You can't unlink a product key or deactivate a license. If you need to transfer the license to another computer or reactivate, you will need to use chat support:

Hi Illustris,
Seems you became a victim of misunderstanding unfortunately. Microsoft account does not keep Windows product keys and cannot be linked with them.
Microsoft account just keep information about computers it was used on.
You need just remove this PC from your home account and use the university's account to log in.
