  2. Email

    Hello,



    Thank you for reaching us on the forum with your concern.



    As per the issue description you have two email id's and you want to change your secondary email to primary on your pc.



    I would suggest you to switch the login account to Local user account. Then switch back to Microsoft account which you want to use. You may follow the steps provided below:



    Step 1: Switch to local user account

    Follow these steps to create a “Local User account”.

    • Press “Windows key +W”.
    • Type “users” without quotes in the search box.
    • Then select “Users” from the left panel.
    • You will get an option “Switch to a Local account” right below your user account name.
    • Select “Switch to a local account” option.
    • Enter the required details.
    • Then login to the local account and check how it works.


    Step 2: Switch back to Microsoft account

    Follow these steps to create a “Microsoft account”.

    • Press “Windows key +W”.
    • Type “users” without quotes in the search box.
    • Then select “Users” from the left panel.
    • Select “Switch to Microsoft account” right below your user account name.
    • Enter the required details (Primary Email ID).
    • Restart the computer and then try to login using new Primary account.


    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.



    Regards,

    User account info lost after changing login email



    create user and login without email [​IMG]


    I recently changed my main Microsoft account login email and after doing so, all my 10 machines no longer show my name on the login screen (shows my email address twice) or in the Start menu (only shows the email address) and as you can see in the above screenshot, permissions no longer show as my login and email address.

    Things I've done so far to try and correct it:
    1. Change my account to local login, then back to my Microsoft login, which temporarily corrected it, but then after a few restarts, the info gets lost again
    2. Manually added my name in Computer Management > System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users... this fixed it, but again, only until a restart
    Has anyone else experienced something like this and no of a way to correct it (and make it stick)?

    create user and login without email

    Cannot create a new user account that can be login.

    Hi Tryx3, thank you very much for your comprehensive solution. Just to throw another spanner in the works I came across the following when I opened the C:\Users to look at the NTUSER.dat file in the Default folder.

    • There are separate folders for every user in the system. I can see folders for all the standard and administrator users that works but
      none for those that have had the profile failure error.
    • I tried creating a new standard (non Microsoft a/c) user again and it seemed to have generated the new user. On the Windows login in screen there was the icon for the new account but when I clicked on it, the same profile failure message appeared.
    • Went back in to C:\Users and sure enough there was no folder for that new user.
    • It seems Windows is creating the login but not a folder for the new user.
    Maybe the reason I'm getting the profile loading error is because Windows created the login but not the user folder that contains his NTUSER.dat, files and subfolders, consequently can't find the profile to load.

    What can you suggest. I am trying to search the Web to find if anyone has a similar problem / solution. Maybe as a last resort will have to use Windows Recovery function that retain my data files.
