  1. Windows 10 user - how to I change the email address associated to it.


    I have had a microsoft account forever. The email address is obsolete and I had an alias with my current email address used as login. A supplier I work with wouldn't allow me to use the alias to access their Onecloud files they wanted to share. I changed it to my primary email on the Microsoft web site. But my laptop still has the old address associated to my user. Now I have login in issues. How can I edit the user on my laptop to the new email address?

    :)

  2. How to change email address associated with a local user account

    I have two local user accounts on my Windows 10 workstation, let's call them 'A' and 'B'. Each of these user accounts have valid separate Microsoft online accounts, let's call them 'X' and 'Y' respectively, however these Microsoft accounts were deliberately
    not used or associated with the local accounts during their creation.

    User 'A' has the primary email account 'X' associated with it, as displayed in 'Your Info'. User 'B' was also (incorrectly and unintentionally) updated so it is now also associated with the primary email account 'X'. Therefore, now both local user accounts
    are trying to connect to Microsoft account 'X' to sync, which is obviously not desired.

    What I am wanting to do is to change the email address associated with the local user account 'B' to use email address 'Y' instead of 'X', without having to delete and recreate the local user account.
    I can't add an alias or any other convoluted solution to the Microsoft online accounts as both X & Y accounts are still valid are meant to be separate so making changes to the respective accounts online doesn't make any sense. I can add email account
    'Y' to the list in "Accounts used by other apps" but cannot remove account 'X' from the list. I also can find no way to change the email address in the 'sync your settings' options.

    For some strange reason there appears to be no logical way to do this. I have tried a few changes in the registry, however, they did not persist so I am guessing the changes are required elsewhere.
    What am I missing, because I expected this to be a reasonably simple problem to resolve?

    Thank you in advance for any assistance.

  3. Cannot change email address for user account

    The email address no longer exists and it needs to be updated to new email address. The Manage option does not allow to change the email address associated with this user account. Someone with an authoritative solution (Microsoft?), PLEASE. Why is something
    so simple apparently impossible to do?
