How to change your email address on your Windows Live ID

Have you run into the problem where you want a new email address but didn’t want to setup a whole new account, sign up for another Windows Live ID. Then you have to setup a whole new Windows Live Space, Add all your friends again, change over your MSDN and TechNet subscriptions, and everything else that your Windows Live ID connects to?

Well I had that same problem because I needed to create a new Gmail address that was, as they say, a little more professional. I mean, I can't possibly put on a resume now can I?

So here is how I figured out how to easily change everything over.

  1. Log into
  2. Click on your name in the top right of the page
  3. Then click on View your account
  4. From there click on the change link next to your email address
  5. Put in your current password and whatever new email address you want to use.
Note: You can not use an email address that’s already linked to another Windows Live ID.
