I want to change the main email address on my gmail account…

Customer Question
I want to change...

I want to change the main email address on my gmail account how can I do that

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On computer

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I went into settings, tried what I was instructed to do, but when I go into personal settings the main email address is locked in, the only email address I can change is the back up. The one that is assigned as backup email is the one I want for main address

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

Not at the moment
