  1. How do I remove an email address linked to my PC user account?


    My PC user profile was somehow linked to my daughter's email address which I am not able to access. Because of this, when I am asked to login to my Microsoft account to make changes, get help, etc., I can't. Further, I am unable to link my PC to my Microsoft account. When I try to manage my PC user account, I see options to change the name, but not the email address. How do I change the email address/Mmicrosoft account linked to this account without deleting my entire account and my files, pictures, etc.?

    :)

    How to remove defunct Email Address from Account

    It is normal to get a code like that for two-step verification.

    You should be seeing this below from the link I posted above after signing in with your Microsoft account.

    This is where you can manage your aliases for your Microsoft account.

    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.
