First of congrats for the great work in the forum! I´ve tried to avoid posting but I can´t find the solution to my problem, this is causing me lots of stress and I really don´t know what else to do now.

Recently I opened and account at myetherwallet.com, then I printed the Wallet and the private key. After this I installed MetaMask as you suggested but when I logged in using it, my address suddenly changed, the little picture also changed. It won´t allow me to download the Wallet and private key for this address, Im quite confused. Now when I log in using metamask in Myetherwallet it takes me to this new address which is not the original one...

PD. I managed to open the original address account through the Keystore/JSON file method, but when accessing through Metamask it takes me to this other address...

I must have done something wrong in the process but can´t recall exactly what it is. Kind Regads.

Metamask can hold multiple accounts and is initialized with a new one. You will need to import the account you created on MyEtherWallet into Metamask via the Keystore/JSON file.

Here is a video showing you how to do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grsBwSDSeuQ.
