How to Change Your Account on Windows Phone
I will teach you how to repair your computer!
Each popular operating system attracts its connoisseurs.
For stationary devices, the vast majority of users chose Windows, although IOS has also been gaining momentum recently, and the good old Linux is slowly disappearing into oblivion. The situation on the mobile device market is different. free and available for download Android occupies a large part of the market.
In recent years, Apple products have burst into fashion on their iOS operating system and are only gaining momentum. Nevertheless, invariably, people acquire Nokia gadgets that have earned their trust and work on Windows Mobile. It is this product, or rather, a certain nuance of its use, that we will consider today.
Why do i need an account?
When registering any modern device, you need to create a user account. Everyone knows that it plays an important role in the further use of the device. Which one? “Accounting” allows you to synchronize the settings of applications and the operating system with other devices of the same user, in fact this is a modified alternative to the usual username. If you have only one computer, the importance of this function is not lost.
First, let’s figure out if you need an account at all. If the user does not plan to further upgrade existing products, then registration itself does not make sense. Considering that the majority of users of Microsoft products, except Windows 10, use pirated copies, you can also forget about registering them.
Although programs for offline activation of such copies can be found an infinite number and in the end do not even make out which one is original and which is not. The founder of the company, Bill Gates, at one time threatened that this would not happen and all pirated copies would be strictly monitored, but everything went wrong as he wanted.
The fact is that the original product, even already outdated Windows XP, costs fabulous money and is simply not affordable for most users. This leads to the use of pirated copies of software. All these nuances relate to users of both stationary devices and mobile. A situation when you need to update the system both on a computer and on other devices in this situation can not do without an account.
How to create a Microsoft account.
To create an account, you just need to register, leaving your basic data and confirm them by clicking on the link provided in the email that will come to the email specified in the questionnaire. A notification will also be sent to the indicated phone in case the user forgets his data, for example, password or login, or maybe both. The created account does not have any bindings to a specific device and you can enter it from any gadget on the Windows platform that has Internet access. Unlike computers, where Microsoft operating systems are found at almost every turn, there are significantly fewer mobile devices based on Windows, mainly Nokia products. But absolutely any user who wants to refresh his device must have his own account in the system, without which updating will be impossible.
How to change a Microsoft account on a computer.
If the account already exists, but is created with any inconsistencies and requires changes, there are several options for implementing the goal. In general, this is not particularly difficult for any device used. First of all, you can do the necessary operations through the official website of the product. By entering the username and password in the required fields, the user will be taken to his profile, where, in the settings, all the previous data that needs to be changed will be indicated. You can change not only the name and place of residence, but also the phone number, email address, even login and password. The procedure is not much different from changing the account of social networks and, accordingly, will not cause any problems for any, even a beginner, user.
Is it possible to change credentials without an internet connection? The answer is only one. no! Consider the example of the growing version of Windows 10. In this operating system, you can disable user recognition when entering or exiting the system, and this can be done quite easily. But changing the password, even if the computer does not have Internet access, will not work in any way.
The system, in any version, will require exactly the data that was specified during registration. Even full administrator rights and account management settings will not help in any way. By disabling all optimization programs, antiviruses and firewalls, nothing will change. The security system will also not allow the use of elementary passwords in the form of a set of identical or consecutive digits.
How to change your Microsoft account on your phone.
Changing a profile through a mobile device also has its own subtleties. The vast majority of smartphones running on the Windows Phone system are, of course, Nokia. Therefore, we take as an example the mobile from the Lumia series. To change the account on this device, you will first need to reset all the settings to factory settings, and then, again, make the necessary changes through the official Microsoft website.
The process is complex and painful; restoring all personal attitudes can take a lot of time and effort. It’s much easier, in fact, to create a completely new record with reference to your phone number. Also, to change the password, you can go from the phone to the official support page of Windowsphone.com and in the help section go to the link “to change the account”. That’s all.
From all of the above, we can conclude that the process of changing a Microsoft account will not create any difficulties. Variants of its execution depend on the device on which this operation is performed. When using a smartphone or tablet with a SIM card, the bias is made to bind the phone number, and for a stationary computer system, Internet access is required. In general, there is a connection with the world wide web now on almost all mobile devices. Communication on social networks is gradually replacing telephone conversations, people use their pocket gadgets to communicate with the world through the Internet. And, therefore, restoring your data on any device is not difficult.
