    A tip for users changing ms account & ms store.


    Today I changed my outlook account to my original gmail account. In an earlier post I gave a tip to fix onedrive. This time I found out the the ms store was asking for outlook account password, did not work. Microsoft support could not help either. But refusing to give up I got to thinking and tried to uninstall ms store...you can't, but it had an advanced option. I checked it out, and it had an option to reset ms store so I gave it a shot and Lo and behold it worked. So if you encounter this problem, you can find the solution here.
