    Change user email login

    I deleted my old email at live.com and created a new Outlook.com email which I use to login to Microsoft. The old bredband email has been deleted but how do I update the email address aat the login screen to show the new one without creating a new account?
    What I am trying to do is where it says my name, email address and password on the login screen is have the new email but cannot figure it out.
    I dont want to create a new account as I dont want to lose or mess about with the settings, email, documents etc.

    Any idea's?

    Hello Alan,

    If you're still able to sign in to the account, you can switch it to a local account first. When finished, switch it to Microsoft account again, but use the new email address.

    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10

    Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 10
