  1. How to change the e-mail associated with my Microsoft account on my laptop.


    My girlfriend logged into her OneDrive account on my laptop and now when I go to my account in the settings, it shows her e-mail under my name. How do I switch it back to my own e-mail??

    Receive e-mail correspondence at an e-mail address that is not associated with my account

    When I order, for example, movies from the Windows Store, I always receive the order receipt at an e-mail address that is not associated with my Microsoft Account. The e-mail address is not listed anywhere in my Microsoft Account, yet I continue to receive
    correspondence at that address.

    I do not want to continue receiving correspondence related to my Microsoft Account at that e-mail address. Within the online account management tools provided at http://account.microsoft.com, however, I can find no way to change that behavior.
    The e-mail address is not listed as an account alias (in
    Your info > Manage sign-in email or phone number), it is not part of my billing profile (in
    Payment & billing >
    Billing info), and it is not listed as an alternative e-mail address (in
    Security & privacy > More security settings).

    It is my understanding (from various chats with Microsoft support) that the e-mail address in question may have been the primary e-mail address on the account in the past, which is why it is still (somehow) associated with my Microsoft Account despite the
    fact that I removed it from my Account a long time ago. Various levels of Microsoft Support have been unable to help. They just keep passing me along to different departments without ever helping. Their latest response pointed me to this community. Is there
    any way someone at Microsoft can remove that e-mail address so that it is no longer associated with my Microsoft Account?

  3. Change E mail associated with account.

    I want to change the email account associated with my phone's account at Microsoft/Zune. The support page says I'll lose all my apps and personal information. My wife did this with her Iphone and Apple was able to just change the email address. Is there
    any way I can change the E mail account without having to start again at square 1? If not, why not? Does Microsoft intend to actualy compete with Apple?

    How to change the e-mail associated with my Microsoft account on my laptop.

    Change E mail associated with account.

    Hello McGees Mills,



    Thank you for posting.



    There is a way to change the E-Mail Address that is associated.

    That would be to switch the Gamer Tag to another E-Mail Address.

    Therefore you will need to create a new E-Mail Address or use one that does not have a Gamer Tag yet.



    Here is a link how to perform this:

    Note that this is only possible on the XBOX Console.

    If you have any aditional questions, feel free to contact us again.



    Kind Regards,
