Is there an answer for this already?

I installed Win8 and set it up with a trash account. This account is now my admin account. How can I get rid of it and use a real @live address for my admin account?

Thanks guys

Hi Shawn,

Thanks for your reply. The idea itself seems to be working. However, I noticed that under my new account I don't have access to any of my documents, photos, music ...

There is no way to just change the primary email address of my first account?

Thanks,

F.

Sure you can. You would have to switch the first account back to a local account, then you will be able to Switch it back to a Microsoft account using the Live ID email address you want instead. :)
