    Change Email for Microsoft


    What happens if I want to change my email for Microsoft sign-in. Will I still be able to sign in to my computer? For some reason, MS has decided that the only way I can sign in to my computer is by entering my email address. It made me do this when I set up Windows. I tried to change this, but it did not work. Anyway, I want to change the email I use, and I want to change the password. Can I, without losing my ability to sign in to my computer. Which, by the way, is used by a single person inside a home where no one else has access to it, so why do I have to sign in anyway? It seems that MS thinks one size fits all. It doesn't!

    Hi Carlo,

    Do you want to replace the current account with another Microsoft Account?

    I suggest you to convert the current Microsoft Account to a local account and then convert back to Microsoft account but while doing so add the new Microsoft account that you want to replace with the old.

    This way you would not need to transfer all her applications, software, data, etc.

    • This will bring up the run box.
    • Type Control Panel and click OK.
    • This will bring up the control panel and you will be able to access the user accounts from there.
    • To change to local account, do the above steps, If in category view Click on user accounts and Family safety.

    , and select

    Step 2:

    Look to see which kind of account you used to sign in:

    • A local account. If you're signed in with a local account, you'll see the words
      Local Account below your name, along with the Connect to a Microsoft account link.

    Switch your local account to a Microsoft account.
