    Idk how to name this problem :l


    I recently bought an Asus laptop with windows 8. When I set up my computer I accidentally misspelled my email, and now that account is administrator, and I can't get into it to change anything. when I could get into it, it wouldn't let me do anything because I hadn't verified that email. I can't verify the email if the email doesn't exist, AND why would the computer let me do that anyway? If anyone can help I would appreciate it greatly. Thank you

    Hello Halogram, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You might see if using the tutorial below to change the email address online for your Microsoft account may help.

    Thanks Brink, but the real problem is that I can't get into my administrator account, and in order to change anything you have to be administrator. I need to change the administrator through the other user account on the laptop

    See step 2 in the tutorial I posted above. You can do this from any computer online at Microsoft.

    If you used an email address with your user account in Windows 8, then you have a Microsoft account. Double check starting at step 8 in the tutorial below to see if any of it looks familiar when you set up your account in Windows 8.
