Can not Delete old Email Address

I have windows 10 on my Dell Laptop and all emails for Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook default to an email address I don’t use anymore. Try to change to my new email / password it says “wrong email or password” and if I choose “forgot your password” will send email to my old email which doesn’t exist.

There is no way to contact Gmail or Yahoo as far as I know.

Is there a place in my Laptop where the emails are stored to go and delete them?

Gmail you need to log out of the current Google account and log into the new one. Also click the colored circle in the upper right corner to go to the Google account settings.

Thats the problem I have Tolyn, I always logout but when I go back, even after a reboot, I'm login automatically. The same with Facebook and Yahoo although Yahoo after a few days looks like I have to login. The colored circle is for settings and of no help for this problem.

They must keep a log in their server or inside my Laptop

Are you using Outlook in W-10 ?
If you go to an email site like G mail and it opens automatically...... the password may be saved in your browser. What browser are you using ?

Usually clearing your browser history and cookies will stop the automatic login.

That's a very good point Pjmax. I dont use Outlook, I use Firefox and its easy to uninstall it and start from scratch.
Thanks

Rather than just deleting FF. You can delete log ins manually and easily.

1) click on the three bars in upper right corner.
2) select OPTIONS
3) select PRIVACY + SECURITY
4) look to the right and click on SAVED LOGINS. You can delete them there.

While there in privacy and security..... look down the page and there is a place to delete cookies and cached content. After clearing this...... you will need to log in manually at all locations.

Will do that, thanks Pjmax

I thought reinstalling may also remove other "garbage" too
