Okay, I think I have gotten pretty far in changing my
facebook log in address, but I am stuck, yet again, in
Here is what I have done so far and what I am hearing
from jaws on the screens as they progress through the
Settings & Privacy link
email is listed and there is a link below it taht says
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.

switching log in email address in facebook
The item you want is account settings. To the sighted it
appears as either 3 dots or 3 verticle lines. Click to
expand the menu.
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
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 on.
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.
