Microsoft Account name needs changing


Thread Starter
Oct 17, 2002
I just bought a new laptop and I made the mistake of signing in to windows 11 with my skype name. Now that is the account that my computer is using. My desktop uses my email address. How can I get my account on the laptop changed? I tried to add my email address as an alias but it told me it was a reserved domain. Is it possible that I have two microsoft accounts? How do I switch now?

Go to Settings > Accounts > Family & other user > Add another user. In doing so, making another account with the correct email address. Then copy over your documents and photos via the \Users\Public\documents and \Users\Public\Pictures folders, then over to your new account.
