    Completely change primary Microsoft account


    Hi just bought new laptop, and upon installation registered the wrong Microsoft account. It then proceeded to upgrade to Windows 10. Please could anybody tell me how do I remove that initial Microsoft account and replace with different one? Thanks

    Hello Sam, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you could switch your account to a local account, then afterwards switch it back to a Microsoft account with the email address you wanted instead.
