Hi! CantBeat

I'm Marvin an Independent Advisor, and I will help you with your issue.

Just Open the "PC Settings" app and go to the Account section. There you can disconnect from the old email account and connect it to your new Microsoft Account while leaving all your stuff in place.

If you still having problems with this, I will be around to help you.

Regards.
