    Change Administrator Email - Made Mistake in Computer Setup

    I am frustrated and can't even get my question right. When setting up my new HP Desktop Computer, I was prompted to establish a Microsoft account. I used an incorrect email address in doing so. How can i change my "administrator's" email address?

    Click the Windows logo, click settings, click accounts.
    Is there a way to change it in there? I never set up my PC with my Microsoft account, just a user name.

    Convert your existing account to a local account then convert it to MS account specifying correct email address.
