    Computer administrator, xbox, family accounts and mine


    How many different accounts can a person have?

    1. the administrator account on my computer, some how has my name and my son's email account tied to it - I'd like to change it

    2. my son uses my email to log on to his xbox

    3. somehow, I got to this community page and it has yet another variation of my name as the account owner???


    It's just a mess and I'd like to clean it up. anyone know what is tied to what?

    :)

    Weird account name and lost Administrator rights.


    Well, I know what I would do.

    Under Settings, Accounts, Family & other users, then under Other users, add someone else to this PC. Then click the link for "the person I want to add doesn't have an email address". Then click the link for "Add a user without a Microsoft account". Then enter a temporary user name like TempAdmin. When the account appears in the Other Users list, click on it. Click change account type. Make the temporary account an Administrator.

    Log in as the temporary administrator account, and copy all the files you want to keep from both the Andrius folders under Users to the temporary account's folder. Then delete whatever Andrius users are listed under settings, accounts. Go back to the Users folders and delete any remaining Andrius folders in there. Reboot the computer, log in as the temporary administrator and recreate an Andrius account using the exact same steps you made the temporary account - you can convert it to a Microsoft account if you want later.

    Then do the rest of the steps to copy all your files back and delete the temporary administrator account.
