Steps

  1. 1
    To get started, we need to open a web browser
    .
    On Mac computers, we move the mouse cursor down to Google Chrome. Normally, Safari is used; but we need to make sure that everything works on different browsers, as there are incompatibilities in different browsers. Google Chrome is guaranteed to work with Elder Scrolls Online. If we prefer to use Firefox, Safari, Opera, or another browser, we simply click the browser of our choice and follow the instructions.

  2. 2
    For now, we are going to click Google Chrome
    .
    Once Google Chrome is opened, we need to make sure that the account is accessed through the https://account.elderscrollsonline.com web site.

  3. 3
    What we need to do now is to find the area where the page says, "CREATE AN ACCOUNT" or "CREATE ACCOUNT"
    .
    One button is at the top next to the picture with the plus sign, and the other is below it. They both do the same thing, so we are going to click the golden-brown "CREATE ACCOUNT" button. Once we click the "CREATE ACCOUNT" button, we'll be taken to the account creation page. As this information is private, some information is blurred or blocked out in this tutorial. It is encouraged not to share our information or log-in details with other people. We have to make sure to keep our information private as we create our own account.

    We are going to start with "DATE OF BIRTH"
    .
    We click and select the year, month, and day.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Once we've entered the date of birth, we are going to click on the "UserID" field
    .
    The user ID is specific to our account and unique. Let's click "UserID" now.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    We need to type our user ID
    .
    When we've typed in the desired user ID, we are going to click "CHECK AVAILABILITY". For the purposes of this tutorial, we are going to type a user ID that is not available, "Wergild".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Now, we are going to click "CHECK AVAILABILITY"
    .
    The user ID will not be available. There is also the indication below that reads "Not available". We'll be given different variants from which we can choose.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    If we like, we can click the actual user name
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Then, we can type a new user name
    .
    Now, we type in the user name that is hopefully not used. Let's type "Joseph".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We click "CHECK AVAILABILITY"
    .
    The user ID is not available.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Let's click the user ID and type "HJBuell"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We click "CHECK AVAILABILITY"
    .
    Once we've successfully chosen a user name that is not taken by another user, we'll see that it is listed as "AVAILABLE".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Then, we can scroll down and continue entering our information
    .
    We'll need to enter our first name, last name, email address with the confirmation, password with the confirmation, and a security question and answer.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Let's start with "First Name" by clicking it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    When we reach the password field, note that we'll be asked to create a strong password that cannot be easily hacked or guessed
    .
    The password should be similar to or the same as our user ID. Once we've entered the password, we'll have the indication whether the password is strong or weak. Our password should be strong. A good way to choose a strong password is mixing letters and numbers. Some people simply take their phone numbers and use the numbers or the letters that appear on the keypad to create their passwords.

  34. 34
    Make sure we enter our user name not the email address
    .

Questions and Answers

Hi Grimm. A long time ago, I played Carmageddon 1 on Win 95 and 2 on Win 98?

The problem is, that after Windows 98, Windows shifted to NTFS, and The Worlds Best Driving Game couldn't play on Computer anymore. I am still very addicted to my Game (Take Care), and I really wanted to ask if a clever fellow like you would know what to do in such an Earth Shattering situation. Please help me Mister. I promise if I see you in my car, I will not aim at you!
