  2. How to replace old Microsoft Account with a new Microsoft Account

    Hi Hitendra,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. I understand your concern and I am glad to assist you.

    I would suggest you to switch your Microsoft account to a Local account first and then switch back with a new Microsoft account. Please refer to the following steps:

    Step 1:

    • Type Manage your accounts
      in the search bar and click on it
    • Click on "sign in with a local account instead"
    • Press next and complete the process.
    • If you do not have a local account, leave the credentials blank and proceed.

    Step 2: Now, on the newly converted Local account, follow these steps to add a new MSA.

    1. In the Start search, type "Manage your accounts" and press Enter.

    2. Choose 'Accounts'.

    3. Click on "sign in with a local account instead"

    4. Enter the Microsoft account ID and Password and click Next.

    Hope this post helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!

    How can I un-link my current Microsoft account that is tagged to my Windows activation license and link it to a new Microsoft account?

    You don't make a new account & try to move your entitlements to it, you change the email address associated with the original account.

    From Microsoft Support - Change the email address or phone number for your Microsoft account

    Burning Files To cdr

    I tried to drag a .txt file to the burn list, as suggested above, but it will not drop in. I get a message "+add to burn list" but I cannot get it to drop into the burn list. Is there another step I am missing?
