    How to change Windows 10 administrator email address

    I have have a new email address which I use to log into my Microsoft account. However, the old email address (which no longer works) is still associated with the administrator account on my PC. I am the only user and have no other accounts on the device.

    How can I change the old administrator email address to the new one?

    There are numerous posts on the MS community on this problem but none actually state what to do. I need a step-by-step instruction sheet Why do you still have my old email address as the Administrator to where I cannot change it... :)

    Can anyone help?

    Sue

    Changing administrator email address on windows 10.

    Will not allow delete of "old Account email address", only "Manage" tab appears.

    Will allow me to delete the "new account" email address though, which is not what I need.

    I changed email address on my "Microsoft account", however administrator still shows "old" email address.
