    Super video Kari. One question:
    At about 2:46, you're signing in at the welcome screen after you've changed your primary email address; the old email address still shows at the sign-in screen, and you say, sign in with your MS account password. Would that be the password for the new email address which was just made primary? or, should that be the password for the old email account since it's still showing on the screen at that point? Sorry for the question, but I get so confused when it comes to this stuff. Thanks!
    The new one, Simrick. The Microsoft account will be the email address you use and the password to go with that email addy.

    No no no! I thought it is obvious but looks as if I have to edit the video to add an explanation. An MS Account alias always uses the same password than the primary alias, the main email address.

    See screenshot below, the blue highlight indicates the main email address, the primary alias, and the yellow the aliases. All these three email addresses when signing in require the same password, the one belonging to the primary alias:

    In the video the MS account itself remained the same as we only changed the primary alias and removed the old primary address, therefore the password is the same you had with the old email address. The change of the email address is done using the MS Account aliases which always have the same password as the main alias.

    Example: we have an MS Account with primary alias, the main email address larry.laffer@anyemailservice.com and it has a password MySuperPassword. Mr. Laffer creates an alias for this account, naming the alias as larry.leisuresuit@outlookhotmail.com. Creating a new alias he is not even asked about a password because an alias inherits the account's primary alias' password.

    Now Mr. Laffer will receive email messages for both of those addresses into the same inbox and can sign in to MS services using either larry.laffer@anyemailservice.com or larry.leisuresuit@outlookhotmail.com, both with the same password, that of the main MS Accounts. If Mr. Laffer now makes the larry.leisuresuit@outlookhotmail.com as his primary alias and removes the larry.laffer@anyemailservice.com address, the password remains, still is the original MySuperPassword.

    In the process shown in the video in question, the MS Account password is never changed.

    Apologies for giving wrong information.

    I think I see now! I think (at least for me) the key word here is alias, which seems to be over-used in some areas of Windows.

    Although it is totally unrelated to your video, would I have been correct in assuming that if I create a brand new (no alias) account, the password for that account would have to be used? And yes, I know it would be a totally different video at that point.

    OH! I don't have more than one email address with MS, so I had no idea they all used the same password. Sorry for the confusion. Now that I know that, it makes perfect sense. [Leisuresuit Larry - I remember that - what a great game!]

    *edit: I don't think you need to modify the video Kari. Anyone looking to do this, will have alias emails already setup, and will obviously know that they all use the same password.

    Yes, you are right. There are two ways to change your sign-in MS Account keeping your OneDrive files and apps, either using an email alias as in the video in question, or creating a totally new MS Account.

    I will make another video covering the option to change the sign-in account to a totally new MS Account. The procedure is somewhat different, simplified it goes like this:
    • Switch your Windows 10 user account from MS Account to a local account
    • Create a new MS Account, either with an outlook.com address or using your existing third party email
    • Switch your user account back to an MS Account, this time using the new MS Account email
    • Set up OneDrive using the folders from the old MS Account already on your %Userprofile%\OneDrive folder
    • Set all sync settings manually as they were on your old MS Account
    • Go to account.live.com, sign in with the old MS Account, remove / delete it

    I was just messing around with Windows 10 today and wondered if the "GodMode" worked on it like it did in Windows 7, so I gave it a try but just changed the name. I did a screen capture and thought it would give me an opportunity to play with Photoshop. This is what I came out with. I may do it over again, I'm not completely happy with it. But it works.

    Wow - I could sure use this feature!
    But, I have a question: is it a different name for 32-bit or something? Because, when I make a folder and name it, I get a regular folder icon with an empty folder.

    I wasn't aware of that. I have never tried it on a 32 bit OS. The name does not matter it is the numbers that matter. You can actually make it any name you want to. I was not aware of a 32 bit limitation though.

    Simrick, I am downloading build 10130 X86 now and will try it out. It is supposed to work on 32 bit, but I'll see tomorrow. Did you name it CONTROL.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} You can change the CONTROL to whatever you want but the
    .{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
    has to be there with some name in front of it.

    I'm going to have to remake the video anyway. I just found out if you delete the desktop folder, the start menu will not work, which makes perfect sense, if you have your brain in gear.
