If you are using MSN Messenger / Windows Live Messenger there is a good chance that your sign-in email is some crazy old email address you haven't been using for years. I know mine is. It would be very cool, simple and professional if I could have my one and only email used for this too. If I could only change my e-mail address...

http://vidmar.net/weblog/archive/2007/06/29/How-to-install-Adobe-Photoshop-CS3-on-Windows-Vista.aspx

I got my hopes quite high when I saw posts that say you can do that under your account settings. But when read further you arrive at dark corner where most people will stop, sit down and give up.

You cannot change your Windows Live ID if your ID is hotmail.com or msn.com email.

Darn.

Why in the world can't I change my windows ID if it is hotmail.com

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 9/22/2007 9:55 PM Mike

U MAY HAVE TROUBLE CHANGING IT. THAT IS BECAUSE MICRO$OFT MAKES IT SO U CAN ONLY CHANGE IT IF YOU GO TO THE WEBSITE USING INTERNET EXPLORER. ANY OTHER BROWSER DOES NOT HAVE ALL THE NEEDED OPTIONS. that means all you Apple users (like me) are SOL. better have a friend or go to the library

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 4/11/2009 7:24 PM Szymon
after surfing the net repeatedly looking for the answer i have come up with this
WE"RE ALL SCREWED!
you must create a new email address and import your contacts this for the average person isn't all that bad.
but for some one who runs a buisness and is signed up for multiple accounts its a pain this means going back to everything you signed up for and giving them your new email for me this is at least 30 websites!
not to mention notifying all my customers of the change and the government !

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 5/8/2009 9:11 AM Eric
alright after several hours of trying i finally figured it out!!!!!
this is a solution for anyone attempting to change their windows live id when the CHANGE option does NOT appear next to the current live id at the account.live.com website. sadly i was only able to figure this out with an xbox live account. so if you have an xbox live account and this problem then follow these steps:

1.create a new windows live id (this will NOT be your account so use some random email that you have acess to or quickly make a new email address that you will only use for this fix)



2.go to the xbox dashbored and under my xbox select your profile and manage accounts. and then change windows live id option

3.follow the on screen prompts until it asks you for the windows live id that you wish to change to. at this point use the id you created at step 1.

4.go to accounts.live.com and sign in using windows live ID from step 1. at this point the CHANGE option will appear where it didnt show up with your old account.

5. select change and type in your password and then select the option that says use a new windows live id. and create the windows live id that you want to use. all of your data from your original account will transfer over. and your xbox live/zune accounts will also update at this time

I really hope this works for you as it did for me.

please email me at pfcender@comcast.net
or leave a message at www.myspace.com/pfcender
if you require clarification on any of the above.

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 7/22/2009 4:23 AM adam
I FOUND OUT THE PROBLEM! You cant change your Windows Live ID email address with a hotmail email address. Example if you have a hotmail email and you want to change it without creating a new account you cant. I know this because I have a hotmail email address and my brother has an aol email address. I can easily change the windows live id with my brothers AOL email address. But cant change it with my HOTMAIL email address. (hotmail and msn are like same things). I hope I helped. Microsoft sucks!

ok so im the original poster. it is best to follow the steps while doing this. now at step 2 you must go to the MY XBOX tab and select the profile page (the one your avatar stands in front of) and then account management and i believe it is the first or second option which states WINDOWS LIVE ID. now replying to this post with questions wont help me help you. instead send me an email at the address i gave above.

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 2/2/2010 4:38 PM galego
to brfian gwilliam, are you trying to use hotmail on an email client like outlook or windows live mail? if not, please specify so the help can be more precise. If yes, you can change the properties on your client side for the account and change the display name there. I'm counting as your email address/ID is correct with hotmail/Live website.

to angelo seminerio, unfortunately, angelo, your id cannot be changed. easiest way is to recreate the email the way you wanted it. sorry.

to Nii Amu, if you're using Windows Live Email or Messenger Live, just go to your options and change the display name on the client side.

Good luck you all.

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 2/5/2010 5:41 AM Rraine
Hi, QJ.

I don't see an option to change ID. This is what I have under Account:

Account:
Password--Change the password you use to sign in to Windows Live.

Linked IDs:
Link multiple Windows Live IDs so you can quickly switch between accounts.

I can only change the password but not the ID. I would rather not want to close my existing account and recreate a new one. What am I missing?

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 6/11/2010 9:54 PM Kassi (Nova)
Hey guys. I know the pain. I'm opening a new email and want to transfer all of my windows live features (chat, spaces, skydrive, email contacts- the whole shebang) from an old email I opened when I was a kid. I had to do everything the long way- download my files and pictures and reup everything to the new account. Including my contacts. HOWEVER! You can download Windows Live Mail- it acts like an FTP server, so you can set up both emails in the same program and drag your old emails to your new address from your old one without having to forward them all to yourself. That is ONE small mercy- and a huge time saver. Once you do that, you'll have to mass-email your contacts and give them your new address from your old one before you delete your old account. Then send a confirmation email to the same contacts from your new account.

I hope this helped a little. I also wish that Windows Live Spaces enabled backtracked entries. I have an enormous blog on mine going back two years that I have to transfer... *sigh*

@Stupified, before you make fun of others or call them stupid, you did not know this stuff where you were in your mothers womb, if you see someone who lacks of knowledge, teach them ! no offense.

How do I make my Windows Live Messenger show only my Firt name or nick name? Showing a full (first and last) name is much too formal for a chat experience.

# re: How to change Windows Live ID 2/5/2011 4:12 PM nikel
i figured how to change it, you go on options, the you are going to see Account, then underneath account it have password, who click password then you are going to see the heading CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, underneath that you are going to see account, click on that, then your are going to see a page that says account overview,AND YOUR WINDOWS ID IS THE FIRST ONE THERE AND TO THE SIDE IT SAYS CHANGE.....i hope you are happy

Why would Microsoft do something like this that no one can get there e-mails in hot-mail. Why do they have a program like windows live that will create all these problems? I lost my hot-mail account, it says its blocked. I changed the password many times, still no luck. I e-mailed as much information to Microsoft as I could, and they say it isn't enough, not sure it is me. I've done this many times. There is so much information in my hot-mail account that I need badly and I'm sure from what I read that many people are in the same boat. What the hell is Microsoft thinking? What kind of information can I give you for you to believe that it is me. My biggest problem was when this new update for live id showed up. So how do I get out of this live id account? Also my internet explorer is gone too. What kind of help can anyone give me. Thanks

I even went to [ask windows live support] and it cost me 38.00 dollars and they still couldn't do anything for me it is a bunch of crap.

It is possible to change your Live ID. I just changed mine. Go to live.com, log in. In the welcome page (or any other after login) you will see your email address in the right top corner with a small triangle pointing down besides. If you click that triangle, you should see the menu account. Right in there, you will find the link to change you main LiveID account mail.

Be aware that you can only change to an e-mail address unknown by liveID. If you inserted the new e-mail address in your profile as an secondary contact info or inserted the new e-mail to the notifications, LiveID will not allow you to change to this new e-mail address
