  1. Windows 10 Admin alias has two email addresses


    Big update came down a few weeks ago, lots of problems. Dozens of hours.

    What I haven't fixed: My Alias now has my email at the sign-in but another email under "Your Info." The spurious email was from another account on this computer which appears to have been totally lost in the update. Efforts to change that extra email address fall flat, the Account alias page doesn't even list the extra email address.

    I've gone through a thread in this community for a similar problem but, like everyone else in the thread, none of the solutions worked. Should I backup all my files and proceed with a total reinstall? That will take a while.

    Thanks for you expertise!

  2. Microsoft account email alias problem

    i changed the alias and removed the default one, so now i have only the new one in the list...the default one that was their is gone

    i did not know that removing the default alias would mean i would lose my original email address, because now my original email adress isnt working.

    and on top of that, my new alias or should i say new email address isint recieving emails... over 20 years of usuing the same email address and its gone because i thought a alias was just a display name.

  3. Alias email addresses

    I want to add my primary email address as an alias and remove the current alias. But when I attempt to, the system comes back with "email address already taken" even though its my primary email address. How do I
    get around this?
