Windows 10: Crazy account/login variations. My fault I suspect
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
Windows store is still using my old Win 10 email login & (Sorted thx to Brink Tute)
- 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

Reason: fixed store issue

I would like help solving a mystery.

Long story short, I am an Amazon reviewer and I recently received a Cube i10 (at a discounted price) from a merchant for the purpose reviewing it.

Hi all :), hope someone can find a fix for me but I fear the worst at this point.:(

So I originally started with a local account but then signed into the store with a MS account. I changed the setting where users are required to enter a password through netplwiz (like this) and making a password not required after waking from...
