    How to change email account log in and save apps


    HP laptop with Windows 8.1 updated. I want to change my log in email and still keep everything I have in that account. Setting up an alias starts a new account and I would have to reinstall everything I already have installed. Is it possible to do to just change the email addie and keep everything?

    The tutorial below can help show you how to change the email address of your Microsoft account. It does use alias, but you do not reinstall everything.
