How to change my Microsoft account email

Our Microsoft email account is functional for hundreds of tasks such as accessing platforms, registering for events, linking the user to promotions and news and many more actions in addition to the classic email. We normally use that Microsoft account for many things, but the time may come to make a change in the name of the address and this is where the alias comes in..

 

An alias is basically an additional email address associated with the Outlook.com account, these aliases make use of the same inbox, the contact list and the general settings of the account associated with the main email address, with this It is possible to log into the Outlook account with any of the registered aliases because the password will be the same for both.

 

 

The main alias is the email address visible on the Microsoft devices where you log in, TechnoWikis will explain how to change the email in Outlook using the alias..
