    First, we will need to verify this is the case before deleting any accounts. We wouldn't want to think we're deleting one, and end up deleting both.

    Run the command in Option Two below to get details for all accounts on your PC, and post them here. Be sure to blank out any personal info. This will let us see if these may be two separate accounts or not.

    You only have the one account on your PC with the SID below.

    SID=S-1-5-21-2829774944-676562036-4062488467-1001

    If you like, go ahead and post some screenshots of where the account name shows that you want to change to see what we may be able to do. Be sure to blank out the first part of the email address.

    It looks like you have a local account in Windows 10, but signed in to an app (ex: "Microsoft Store" or "Mail" app) with your Microsoft account.

    1) Look in Settings > Accounts > Email & accounts.

    2) Check under both "Accounts used by email, calendar, and contacts" and "Accounts used by other apps" to see if you have len*****@outlook.com listed.

    In that case, you may have signed in to the Mail and/or Calendar app with the "len" address.

    See if you can click on the len address under "Accounts used by email, calendar, and contacts", click on Manage, and click on "Delete account from this device".

    Next, see if you can click on the len address under "Accounts used by other apps", and click on "Remove".

    If this was able to successfully remove the len address, then you will need to sign in to the app (ex: Mail) with your correct "case..." address.

    Before I remove Shawn I have just noticed that the len account in ACCOUNTS USED BY OTHER APPS when I clicked manage the Microsoft account screen said the "case" address. and if I go to mage and remove it it will remove "case" instead of "
    What the heck is going on now I don't know what to do

    That's ok.

    It may be best to remove the account from both areas to clear it.

    Afterwards, go back and sign in to the app(s) using the "case" address to see if it will only show "case" now instead of the "lens" address.
