    How To Change Administrator Email Address?

    How can I reset email address in Control Panel > User Accounts > Make changes to my account in PC settings ?
    If you Google this question you will get only instructions only on how to change password. I don't want to change the password, I want to change the email address.

    You log out of Microsoft user account and log back with your new email address.

    I believe you have to sign in to your MS Account online and create an alias email address, then switch to it as your default.

    Hello beau,

    You would need to change your Microsoft account's primary alias to be the email address you want.

    Thanks FreeBooter ~
    I've been googling how to sign out and can't find an answer that makes sense.
    For instance, Microsoft's own page says

    1)Go to settings (Not control panel)

    2)Click on Accounts
    3)In the Your Account tab click on Sign in with local account instead (Above Your Picture)

    4)Type in your password and you are done!

    but in fact there is no such "Sign in with local account instead" choice on that page.

    I think you first need to create a local account and you should see the Sign in with local account instead from Settings --> Accounts --> Your info.

    Why don't you follow @Brink suggestion?

    This is what I see logged in with a Local Account using the 'path' you posted:
