Okay, I think I have gotten pretty far in changing my facebook log in
address, but I am stuck, yet again, in the process.
Here is what I have done so far and what I am hearing from jaws on the
screens as they progress through the process.
Settings & Privacy link
email is listed and there is a link below it taht says edit.
I clicked on edit and the new window has my original email and next to it
it says primary
below that line it says privacy and it says friends and below that it
says edit (which I am assuming I can change to allow people who are not
active friends to look me up using that email address in the search bar on
below that is the second email address which I want to make as my log in
address and next to that is says confirmed, as you explained via the emails
I got after I had added the email address to my facebook account.
the only option under that is remove for the secondary email which I want
to make my log in email address.
not sure what else I am supposed to do. like I said, the help file said
to do something with the 3 dots but there is no option to make the new email
address my primary log in address for my facebook account.

The item you want is account settings. To the sighted it appears
as either 3 dots or 3 verticle lines. Click to expand the
Arrow down to settings and press enter to open it.
move by heading to the general settings heading.
Expand the contacts menu.
Down arrow until you come to emails.
Your current email is shown.
Keep arrowing down to the add email button.
Add the email you want to use as your new user ID.
You will receive two emails. One will go to your current primary
account telling you that a new email was added.
The other goes to the new email address asking you to confirm it.
Press the confirm button.
Reopen Facebook and navigate back to the emails dialog.
You will see both the old and new emails listed. There will be a
checkbox labeled primary or something similar. Check it for the new
email and you should be all set.

Hi, I asked this question earlier in the
week and was told by one member that she could not remember exactly how
to do this.
I did a help search from inside facebook
and it said something about clicking on a 3 dot symbol and then
selecting from a drop down menu that opens.
Is this possible on a windows 10
compuger running jaws?
Seems like every application and/or program
out there (at least the ones made by microsoft) have hotkey buttons and
keystrokes you can use but Facebook apparrently has not caught
Ponse media downloader even has hotkeys a
blind person can use, though I honestly don't use them, instead I simply
use the tab key to navigate around.
But I digress,
I added an additional email address to my
facebook account, but the original email I entered to make the account
is still listed as the primary log in email.
these 3 dot thingie is supposed to open a
menu to make the needed changes, but like I said, I have never come
across 3 dots (due to being blind) to get this done.
