This post explains how to create an account alias to sign in to devices with your Microsft account.
A Microsoft account is what you use to access many Microsoft devices and services, including signing into Skype, Outlook.com, OneDrive, and more.
Email addresses and phone numbers associated with your Microsoft account are called aliases, and they use the same contacts, online storage, subscriptions, and account settings.
Users can create account aliases with their Microsoft accounts. Microsoft allows you to use multiple aliases that you can use with Outlook.com, Skype, OneDrive, Office, Xbox, Windows, and more.
Aliases you create share the same password you use to sign into your devices.
Add, remove, or phone number for your Microsoft account
As mentioned above, users with Microsoft accounts create multiple aliases to use multiple aliases with Microsoft services such as Outlook.com, Skype, OneDrive, Office, Xbox, Windows, and more.
All the aliases you create share the same password for your Microsoft account.
Here’s how to create an account alias in a Microsoft account.
This post assumes you have already created a Microsoft account. If not, read the post below.
Once your account is created, click the link below to manage your account aliases.
Click the Add email link on the Manage page to add an alias. To add a phone number, click Add phone number instead.
Then, type in the new alias name. Or type in an email address you want to add to your Microsoft account as an alias.
Click the Add alias button to add it.
If the alias name is already taken, it will display an error message that it isn’t available. If available, a new alias will be created.
You can make the new alias a primary alias. You can also use the alias to sign into Windows and other devices using Microsoft services.
That should do it!
