    Crazy account/login variations. My fault I suspect

    Why Halo guys, old friends and potential new. Been off the PC for a very long time.

    This is what I did:

    I was annoyed that I had used a separate login for Xbox and Win 10.
    (More annoyed that I couldn't change my master xbox email account, can't add my Win 10 account as an alias because it exists already)

    I discovered here, that I could change my default Win 10 login Account by changing to local, then back to Microsoft account using a new address (My Xbox Alias)

    Now I can get into Win 10 no prob, hallelujah there is my Xbox account woohoo. BUT

    1. Windows store is still using my old Win 10 email login & (Sorted thx to Brink Tute)
    2. I cannot add my new Win 10 (Xbox email, now new Win 10 login) to MAIL. Just wont do it stating Error 0x8000ffff

    So from where I see it, I have two Win 10 Accounts associated with my Win 10.

    OId Win 10 Outlook Login address & My new Outlook Login address (Xbox)
    I don't want the old one, I am old already

    It will be easy I said, just do it I said

    What have I done and can I fix it? Is it a matter of waiting for MS to catch up and sync?


    • Swapped original Win 10 MS Account log-in email with an existing MS Xbox Account log-in email.
    • Can now login to Win 10 with existing Xbox Account email & it is my new Win 10 Account.
    • Cant add Xbox Account (new 10 account) email to MAIL.
    • Store asks for old (original) Win 10 MS Account. (Sorted thx to Brink Tute)

    Sorry for confusing post, like I said, geriatric.

    What I have tried:
    I removed the email and calendar apps and reinstalled

    What I am too scared to try:
    Remove my PC (Device) listed on the old (original) email account online
