    Problem with logging in to Microsoft Account


    For some reason windows is now asking for me to login to my MS account? and it's asking for a very old email address which I changed years ago when I left my old provider to my current one, How can I change login to my account using my current email address?

    Thanks

    Hi, MS can help you recover an account which may help somewhat:

    Is your login account local or tied to an MS live id (account)?

    When do you receive this prompt?

    You can do this:
    Switch to Local Account in Windows 10
    Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10
