How do I change my Microsoft Account email address

Q

The email address for the account set up is no longer active so I need to change it to my new one but I can find no way of doing this. I have been to account settings but can not see anything there that helps. I tried putting my new one in as an Alias to then delete my old one but it says my new one is already in use.
