How do I change User ID and Windows Live Account to a different Outlook email address
When I loaded Windows 8 I used my gmail address as user ID and email, so my user ID and the email address set up at present as my hotmail and Windows Live account are gmail. I want to close my gmail account and have already opened a separate new Outlook
account and want to replace the gmail account with this new account as my Microsoft live account and Windows user ID. Can you tell me how to do this please.

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.
From the issue description, I understand that you need assistance in replacing the current Live Id (Gmail) by Outlook account.
You may create a new Microsoft account using the new email address which you have already created and transfer the files and settings. Please follow the steps to create a new account and make it as an Administrator user.
Method 1: Create a new user.
You may refer the link below to create a new user account.
Method 5: You may follow the steps if you want to remove the email address from the mail app. However, we would request you to add the new hotmail account to mail app before you remove the Gmail account.
