Hello Larry C,

 

Here are described some options to consider for what you want :

 

https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/1704356?hl=en

 

Quote from the Help pages :

 

If you don't use Gmail, you can change the email address for your account. This change will affect all Google products you use, so other Google products might send emails to this email address and you'll have to sign in to all products using this email address.

To change the email address on your account:

  1. Sign in to your AdWords account at https://accounts.google.com.
  2. In the "Security" section, click Change email.
     
  3. Enter your new email address and your current password.
  4. Click Save.

Once you've saved your changes, you should receive a verification message at the email address you just entered. To complete the changes, you'll need to click the verification link in this message. You should also receive a message at your old email address confirming that you're no longer using this email to sign in.

Hi, I have the same issue. Is there any way I can change the primarily email address?

From your steps, the only option I have is to change the password. The mistake I made is to create a gmail account and now, I am stuck with an email I no longer want. I have setup another email but I just can't make the new email as the primary.

 

I just can't believe it was made very difficult to change something that should be very simple!

Yes, I have the same problem.  And it remains unresolved.

I am amazed at the pure incompetence that Google exhibits in handling this issue and others.  Adwords is their cash cow and they can't even make it work properly, document it properly or support it properly.

Look at the page mentioned by Adrian above.  Google's own documentation doesn't match with its screen shot (see attached pic).

An old email address was used and needs to be updated.
