Mail, Calendar, Contacts missing arom Windows 8 after changing my Microsoft Account

I recently installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on my system. I changed the email address for my Microsoft account. Now, all my mail, calendars, or contacts that I had set up has gone missing.

How do I get to my data back?

Re: Mail, Calendar, Contacts missing arom Windows 8 after changing my Microsoft Account

As you have changed your connected Microsoft account on your Windows 8 Consumer Preview PC, you?ve got to reconfigure your mail account.

The steps for which are:

1) Open the Mail app.
2) Swipe in from the right edge and select the Settings charm.
3) Select Add Account and enter the details for the account that you need to configure.
4) Click the Add button.


When the account is added and data synchronized, you should see all the mail, calendar events, and contacts. Perform the same steps for each account that you need to configure.

I appreciate your help, but swiping doesn?t really seem to help. I?m using a mouse, do I need to use a touch screen? Or am I doing it the wrong way?

Mouse should be fine. I guess, you are doing it the wrong way. Bring up the charms by moving your mouse pointer to the top right hand side corner of your screen and then choose ?Settings? Pressing ?Win+C? is another alternate medium to go ahead with it.
