    My sign-in email is inextricably linked to the wrong account.


    Windows 10 Version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1110) Hello. When I bought this new PC (may years ago now), I set it up with the official windows account as an .aol account, because that's what I had. In the meantime, I've gotten an Outlook account and want to make that my primary account, but my original .aol account is already linked to the Outlook account! I press the .aol and get the Outlook. When I originally sign in to Windows, I enter the .aol account's password. So here in more detail. When I go into Windows Settings, Your Info, it shows my account image, my name in bold, my email (with the .aol account), Administrator -- > Billing info etc. etc. --> Manage my Microsoft Account I have an Outlook account, and want it to be the Your info base account. When I go and press "Manage my Microsoft Account" with the .aol account, it takes me to my Outlook account! It's very confusing. I read the How to Upload and Post Screenshots and Files at Ten Forums link, but something is going wrong... Thank you very much, I sure hope that I've explained it properly.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 - Wrong Microsoft Account linked to local admin account - no Sign in with local account instead link available

    Thanks for the response. What I suggest you do is to switch to a local account and then switch back to your Microsoft account.

    Here's how:

    • Sign in using the Microsoft account.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Click Accounts.
    • Under Your email and accounts, click Sign in with a local account instead.
    • Type the password of the Microsoft account and click Next.
    • Under Switch to a local account, click Next.
    • Click Sign out and finish.

    Once you're done switching to a local account, you can now set your new Microsoft account to associate on your Windows 10 computer. Make sure to type in the correct email address you want to associate to your PC. Follow the steps provided above and click
    Sign in with a Microsoft account instead to set up your new account.

    Should you have further questions, let me know.

    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.

    My sign-in email is inextricably linked to the wrong account.

    Cannot sign in microsoft account.

    My device: Lumia 520. GDR2.
    I cannot sign in my Microsoft account on my device. It didnt say any error but Microsoft account is not listed in Email and account list. When I click add button, it will show microsoft account option but after press sign in, it is still not shown in email
    and account. Another problem is i cannot delete facebook account. Error code: 0x83cf1202. I have tried as suggested here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2475837/en-us#step0x83cf1202 but as my Microsoft account is not shown, I cannot do step 6. My sign-in email is inextricably linked to the wrong account. :(

    Any suggestion?
