    logged onto windows live mail with wrong name


    Hi,, I've been on windows 10 and windows live mail for a few years since I bought this new PC..

    I have just noticed that on WLM I have an account name of Anthony Mc Clenaghan and a mobile No....

    I don't know the name or the phone No....or when it first appeared--maybe from first use??

    I have just changed the name (I think) but didn't want to delete too much account name details, for fear of causing myself even more problems,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


    any answers
