    Getting Rid Of Old EMail On Welcome /StartUp Screen

    Hi all

    Nervous newbie nudging 60 here.

    Tried to follow instructions I was led to on YouTube to delete old email showing where I sign in with Windows 8.1 Pro Update.

    Thought I'd cracked it as the old email has now disappeared from everywhere else I used it to sign in.

    Signed back into Windows and.................... there it was again.

    I was asked did I want to delete signing in with Windows and sign in locally. Now I'm not smart, but I didn't like the sound of that

    so cancelled that option.

    As one lady to a host of gentlemen experts , may I ask: will someone not rid me of this turbulent email address???

    Thanking you in anticipation of any/everyone's kind assistance in this matter.
