I changed my internet provider and was able to change my Apple /Icloud/Itunes username.
BUT on my updates my OLD username is there on both my IMAC and laptop and I cannot change it.
Like I said I can log in to any other Apple application/website, just not do any updates.
How do I change this?
QUOTE Thanks

I'm assuming you're referring to your Apple ID, the one that is used when you access the Mac App Store and make purchases or download updates? Information and account options can be found here.

Just as a quick hint.... you can't change your Apple ID. You can however, change your password, credit card info, etc. Also, why did you make the above changes when you changed Internet Providers? It shouldn't have been necessary.

First sorry I posted it in the wrong area.
Second, my username was my OLD e-mail address tied to my provider,so I had to change it.

The changed worked for everywhere else BUT NOT for my updates that come in automatically.
Thanks for your reply anyway.

Yes you can, see here
Apple ID: Changing the email address you use for your Apple ID

It just does not change it when it asks me to log in to do updates.

Note what the article states:

Note: If your Apple ID and your primary email address are currently the same, changing the primary email address will also change your Apple ID. If your Apple ID and your primary email address are different, changing your primary email address will not change your Apple ID.

Thanks I figured it out how to do it after about 4 hours of trying everything.
