    Hello Email Questions Forum expert(s)

    I have a Hotmail account that I want to just change the name, but keep the contents of the account.
    Is a name change possible:
    Instead of
    mrrockn***hk@hotmail.com
    I want to change it to
    cy****8or@hotmail.com

    Can I do that?
    Or is an "alias" another alternative???

    Please explain to this computer "dummie"
    Thanks A lot.

    It is no possible to change the username of an account. To create additional usernames you can create a second account or an alias associated with the original account.

    If you found this discussion because you want to change your real name, please see this discussion - How to change your personal information in Hotmail | Email Questions
