I loaded Windows 8 and used my email address as asked and it appeared after my name and before the password request line at each boot up. I believed the Laptop was running very slowly so I carried out a clean re-install of windows 8. Stupidly I misspelt my email address this time and did not notice it until I was asked to verify that the email address was mine (I had done this successfully the first time I installed Windows 8) so I again asked for the email from Microsoft to be sent again, when it did not arrive yet again I started looking and found my error.
My problem now is I cannot find a way to rectify the error. I just get more and more confused with the Microsoft help screens, I do not understand the terminology, I am sure I will end up with what I do not want. All I want is my email address spelt correctly at the sign in to Windows 8 screen, and for my Microsoft account to be accessible to me. Help Please.
