Windows 10: Log-In Screen without Email or Phone # Solved

    Log-In Screen without Email or Phone #


    Hello:

    I just did a reinstall of Windows 10 from an ISO download- I inadvertently set up a Microsoft account and now to my dismay my log-in page shows my email address.

    How can I set up my login page with either my email address or phone number - I would like to replace my email address with a name or initials?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    If you like, the tutorial below can help show you how to turn off having your email address show on the sign-in screen. It should then only show your Microsoft account's display name.
