Microsoft Account Query Help Required

Hi. I have a Dell laptop with windows 10 as my own personal computer. When I started new job I was given an Asus windows 10 laptop (brand new) as my work computer. Setting up seemed simple enough and it asked me to set up with Microsoft Account. I have noticed that my personal emails and pictures etc keep popping up on my work laptop. I believe that this laptop may also have been "ghosted" and I am concerned that my own personal details from my own laptop are being watched. Is it possible to change my work laptop settings without losing any of the work information including work emails which is microsoft exchange. Thanks.

I would set up a new microsoft aoount and use that for your work laptop. Add the account to the laptop, set up work eMail address and check it works before deleting personal accont from works laptop. If you Google "Change Microsoft account on pc" there are lots of easy to follow answers.
