    Afterwards, either enter or select your old email address and password, and check only the Remember my ID and password box. This way when you open Windows Live Messenger, you should no longer be automatically logged in and be able to select the account you want to sign in with.

    Thanks, but that is exactly what I meant with the thread in the first post, that such thing doesn't work.

    I uncheck remember me and login automatically, I click on Forget Me... all useless. Once and again everything will happen the same way and will connect automatically to that account that I am FORCED by Microsoft to have in order to use this Windows 8.

    Thank you very much anyway.

    Are you able to select or type in the email address you want to sign in with instead, check "Remember...." and "Sign me in automatically", and click on the Sign in button to always have it sign in with that account instead automatically when you open WLM?

    No, it doesn't work. A different address won't stay no matters what I do. The next time I open it I will get always the same address and automatic connection. It really is irritating.

    Thank you for your help Brink.
