    Win 10 change Microsoft account


    Hi
    is it possible to change the Windows 10 Microsoft account to a new one?
    During upgrade from Windows 7 the requested Microsoft account was not created correctly.
    The filled in MS account does NOT exists! Account could not verified.
    I created an alias account for the primary account. By mistake - I assumed there will be a new Outlook.com/Live account created - I filled in another not existing Microsoft account.
    During startup/login this new alias account is shown and I can login to W10 correctly.
    But I cannot change to another (alias) existing Microsoft account.


    • Is there a way to change the primary MS account?


    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Settings - Accounts - Your Account

    At the bottom you can a Add a Microsoft account; I don't know if you create a new account and login to it if you can delete the old account or if it will ask you which to login to every time.


    Edited: Did you edit your above post or did I total zone out? Disregard the above, you already tried that it appears.
