    Win10 Email App - odd broken account - cant delete?


    i cant figure this one out.. I have an email account that stopped working. I can not access the settings. I doesnt even show in the Win 10 account settings..

    So I added a second one of the same account. Which works fine... but now I still have the broken one that i CANNOT delete!?? lol

    If i right click it > account settings
    it merges (links) with the other one.. and then It shows linked in the account settings. But when I select it, nothing shows.

    Is there a secret location in registry or somewhere I can delete it!? its driving me crazy *Devil

    :)

  3. "Windows store won't open" Windows 10, is only the tip of the iceburg of what is root cause...

    The script he ran would affect all users due to the -AllUsers command switch. I have even tested other accounts, they all have broken apps just as my main account. It is odd but apps like 3D Builder was not affected, but the store and calc, and photos,
    and dvd player are all broken in the start menu.

    Try deleting it by logging into you account online using a browser.

    If you go to your email Sign in to your Microsoft account and then settings ( The cog wheel ) then go to " View Full settings " then go to " Accounts " You will probably find it there.

    Edit:
    Yours may be different I am using the beta mail on Outlook, But clicking on the settings cogwheel will get you to the accounts settings eventually.
