    How to switch email accounts for the same user?


    My windows (hotmail) account was recently hacked, and is irretrievable. I have created a new windows account, but my windows 10 user is associated with that old account that I no longer have access to. How do I change the email of this account?

    You can switch to a local account and then back to Microsoft account using the new email address.

    Local Account - Switch to in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    To login to a Local Account I need the password to my email account which I don't have. ("First, we need to verify you current password.")
