    account.live.com - sign in there, click change to the right of windows live id near the top.

    This method ONLY works if you are not using a live.com/hotmail.com email.

    Alternative, register an email at live.com, sign in on console, go to settings, account, your information, windows live id, change windows live id. Enter current password, new email and new password.

    If you want to change your email, go to account management then go to windows live, then select change email.

    I'd suggest trying to sign in online to make sure you've got it typed in right. It is case sensitive and needs to match EXACTLY.

    I've done tech support and this is a very common error.

    Hey there RPJ! If you are unable to change your Microsoft Account email online you may be in a 30 day wait period. This can sometimes happen when changing sensitive information on your account. Usually that provides a message about the wait.

    If you'd like to get more info on the state of your account, please contact us directly and speak to an account agent. Let us know how that goes, thanks!
