    Sign out of her account on your Mac at system preferences > iCloud and create your own Apple ID. You can continue to use her ID for iTunes so that you share your purchased content.

    the apple id is mine and predates her even having a computer of anykind and that does not solve anything that i can see i have to give up my accunt create another and to have one for anything but itunes purchases and then i have to use "hers" which has my credit card and my google email adress neither are hers that ***** think ill give this away and get a cheap windblows

    Then you keep your account and let your wife create a new account. If you don't want her to have access to your content from iTunes or be able to purchase content on your account, then have her use her own account for iTunes too.

     

    It's far from difficult.

    You need her to sign out of your account using the button with sign out written on it.

     

    Then sign in using her account details. If she doesn't have an account, use the create Apple ID link in the set up window.

    i dont understand a thing u say it seems i need to mess her up to get a differant nick name the whole thing is ununderstandable perhaps at 63 i should just give up

    I'm not really sure what you are expecting. As I understand this, your wife is using your account which uses your email address, you want your own account but you want to use your email and do so without getting your wife to stop using your email address.

     

    That simply can't be done, unless I misunderstand you, your wife needs to be involved in your solution.
