The gallery defaulted to a onedrive account that I don't use. How do I change it to a different account?

Go into Gallery settings and turn off Sync with Onedrive. Now add the account to Settings->Accounts and Backup and set that account to sync. If you want a photo specific sync similar to Gallery install either Google Photos or Amazon. There is no more Samsung Cloud so Onedrive is the only built in option for the Gallery app.

Thanks but that didn't work. I have 2 onedrive accounts. One is free the other is paid. It defaults to the free and can't get it to point to the paid.

The account in the "accounts and backup " is the paid account. The free one is not listed, but gallery defaults to it for some reason. The free one is full so I definitely need to get to the paid one.

Just FYI, the OneDrive app has a similar experience/interface when you click the "Photos" icon at the bottom of the screen. 

I enjoy the "On the day" feature of OneDrive. It will show you photos that happened today across the years. This is really interesting when you dump 20+ years of photos in OneDrive. It lets you relive some old memories.

@bigjay1971.
Sorry, I misunderstood.
I simply have only one OneDrive account listed under Accounts and Backup, it has the same username as the free one would have but it is an existing account and my Gallery syncs to it.
Try deleting the free one and entering the other.
