    Primary Mail Account Selection


    If you have multiple mail accounts, is there a way to switch which one is default or primary (the one displayed first when opening mail)?

  2. Windows 10 "Mail" app not showing primary email address as selectible account

    After Windows 10 update during which I was asked if I wanted to add new accounts in addition to the primary email account which was already showing and I did add two accounts, the Windows 10 Mail app will allow me to select the new accounts without a problem,
    but the primary account is not an available selection. When I look at the app's settings "Accounts", the primary account is listed. What's up?

  3. Windows 10 Upgrade Primary Account - Affiliated with wrong Live Account e-mail

    Hi Yoshi,

    As per your query, you can sign into Local Account
    and then you can switch back to Microsoft Account. While
    switching back to another account, you can provide the New E-mail Account.


    I suggest you to follow the below steps;


    • Click on Start Icon.

    • Select Settings from the menu.

    • Click on Accounts.

    • Select the option Sign in with a
      Local Account Instead
      .

    • Once you are logged in to the Local Account,
      repeat step 1 to step 3.

    • Now, select the option Sign in with a Microsoft Account Instead.

      (In this method you can provide your new account)
    Note: The above steps will help you to switch to users, which will act as primary account, but it will not synchronize your personal settings. The default settings will be set to
    the user account.

    Hope the given information is helpful. Kindly write back to us for further assistance on Windows. We will be happy assist.

    Thank you.
