    Well, gave up. And reading about on other sites, that admin email address seems impossible to change. Not helped by my PC seeming to be stuck between Microsoft account and local account.

    Created a new admin user. Copied all my files and set it all up again. Deleted the old user.

    Good as new, well, once I get everything back in place again.

    That is not applicable here, yours was a normal administrator account.

    It's referring to the built-in Administrator account getting linked to an MS account, something that's possible in a few exceptional circumstances and impossible to undo.

    It was a normal admin account, but something went wrong with it when my son logged in. Maybe because windows 10 was an upgrade from admin account on windows 7, it was never tied to a Microsoft account. Or maybe because he has monitoring by Microsoft family. Either way it screwed up my local admin account.

    Hey, I had the same issue and found a solution that worked for me. No more incorrect email address linked to my local admin account. I posted the solution a few minutes ago under another thread: Undo Administrator Account tied to a Microsoft Account - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums
    Hopefully it works for you too
