    Can not create a new user in Windows 10: email address 'already added to this PC"


    As an administrator of a Windows 10 desktop PC, I want to add 'user X' with email addres *** Email address is removed for privacy *** as a Windows 10 user, but i get the error message saying that "*** Email address is removed for privacy *** can not be added because it has already been added".

    The user account control panel clearly shows that the admin Diana is the only user on this PC, User X doesn't show up.


    UserX had been added in the past but was correctly removed as a user later on. Now I want to add him again but i get the error message described above. Nowhere i can detect any reference to user X in the configuration panel or even in the system files....But it must be stored somewhere as the system still makes reference to it.


    What do i miss?

    Creating new user account will not allow work email address

    I need to create a new user on a new Windows 10 pc. I get an error: "You can't sign up here with a work or school email address. Use a personal email....". This is a business pc not a personal pc. How can I create a new user account using a business
    email address?

    Hello Jordan,

    Please follow the below mentioned steps to change your email address without creating a New User Account and check if it helps.


    • Navigate to Start/> Settings/>Accounts/>Your Account

    • On the right pane click Manage my Microsoft account, which will take you to online.

    • Select Your info from top menu, then click on Manage your sign-in email or phone number. Enter your email account password, when it prompts to do and click Sign-in

    • Again it will ask you to verify your Identity through Alternative email address or by
      Phone verification, which will send you a authentication code accordingly.

    • Once you enter the verification code push Submit, then click
      Set it up later when it ask for device setup.

    • Under Account aliases, click Add email and choose the email either through
      Create a new email address or Add a existing email address, then click
      Add alias

    • On completing this, click on Make primary next to the desired email address to make it primary alias.
    You're done with change your email address. Reboot your PC for changes to take place. This procedure won't change or wipe your personal files or settings, instead it will change your email address. Going forward you will be communicated and alerts
    will be sent to new email address. If you want to remove the old email address, then you can do the same by clicking on Remove without any issues.

    Delete Outlook email address and add new admistrator email

    Hi,

    If you've created a new account, you can assign it as the new administrator account and delete the other one. For us to provide a suitable solution to your concern, we'd like to have some clarifications regarding the issue:

    • Are you signing to your laptop using a Microsoft account?
    • Are you able to sign in using the new email address you've created?
    • Did you assign the newly created email address or user account as the new admin account?

    In the meantime, if you can login using the new account that you've created, try creating a new admin account or setting it up as the new admin and delete the old one by following the steps in this
    article.

    We'll wait for your response.
