I just got a laptop with Windows 10 so I signed in with my microsoft account. As my full name appears on the login page I realised it was my old name (got married recently) so I went to my microsoft account page and changed my name to be my current name and saved it. On the account screen it still said my old name so I thought 'hmmm that's weird' and went back to the edit screen which showed that it had saved my change. But it's not propagated anywhere other than on the edit page. My Windows 10 login is still showing my old name, the bar at the top of the webpage for hotmail is still showing my old name, the account detail page is still showing my old name. How do I get rid of my old name since changing it on the edit screen is not working? It's been 2 days now and I can't believe it's still not changed. Can anyone help? I'd be eternally grateful.
The other slightly weird thing I'm seeing now (in last 10 mins) is that if I try to change my name (for the 20th time) using https://account.microsoft.com or account.live.com (this page has my old name) and clicking 'edit name' it takes me to a page (with my new name - hurrah!) and then asks me to confirm my name to continue and when I click save I get an error saying
