    Change Outlook primary account

    I would like to change the primary account on my Outlook 365. I have multiple accounts for school, personal and work. The problem is that my school account receives dozens of calendar invites which is good, but when I accept them, by default they get added
    to my personal account and not my school account where they belong. I can find no way to resolve this when import calendar events or in the outlook settings. Some posts on the internet suggest using a file "control mlcfg32.cpl" but I don't seem to have that
    on my system. This is a problem and I really do not want to delete all of my outlook accounts just so I can add calendar events.

  3. Unable to change primary alias - Microsoft Account

    Hi John,

    As per the description, you are experiencing issue with you are unable to change the primary alias for your Microsoft account on the system.

    I certainly understand your concern and appreciate all your efforts in trying to fix this issue.

    I would like to provide you with the information that
    an account alias is an email address or phone number that you use to sign in to your Microsoft account. You can have multiple aliases, and use any of them with Microsoft services such as Outlook.com, Skype, OneDrive,
    Office, Xbox, Windows and more.

    Your primary alias appears on devices such as your Xbox, Surface, and Windows Phone, and is the email OneDrive sends from when you share. You can choose a different alias to be the primary one at any time.

    An alias is also the best way to change your email, but keep all your mail.
    Add an alias, then make the new alias primary. Then you can
    keep or remove the original alias.

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    Note: The email alias at the top of the list without a Make primary link is your current primary alias.

    • Uncheck the Send me promotional offers from Microsoft box if you like, and click/tap on Yes to confirm.
    You may also try the following steps given below and check if that helps.

    • Navigate to Start>Settings>Account>Your Account.
    • In the right pane, click on Sign in with a local account instead.
    • Provide your current Microsoft Account Password.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions.
    • You can leave the Enter Password option empty, however, it is highly recommended to keep a password on your system to keep it safe.

    For reference:

    I would suggest you to refer to the article given below and check if that helps.
