How do I change the email address tied to my Google linked YouTube user name?

  1. Log in to YouTube with your username and password.
  2. Click the "My Account" link in the upper-right-hand corner.
  3. Under Account Settings, click the "Email Options" link.
  4. Click the "change address" link.
  5. Type your password into the Current Password field and your new email address into the Email Address field.
  6. Click the "Send Email" button.
  7. Check to see if you've received an email from YouTube in the account you entered. (If you don't see it after several minutes, check your Spam folder to see if it was filtered out of your main Inbox.)
  8. Once you've opened the email, click the included link. You will be brought to a page that says, "Your email has been confirmed."
lightbulb Note: If you do not have a "change address" link in the Email Options page, you've created your YouTube account from your Google account which doesn't give you an option to change your email address.
