    2 Microsoft accounts, 1 Xbox account, purchased games using the wrong account


    Hi,

    I have 2 Microsoft accounts. My Xbox is registered with account 2 only, can't register it with 1.

    Accidentally I redeemed codes for aa couple of games on account 1 - the one without Xbox Live.

    How can I transfer them over to account 2 please?

    :)

    Hi GosiaSowa, I hope you're doing great despite the issue you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regard to your concern.

    I'm sorry but there is no option or feature yet to transfer games from one account to another but there is a workaround wherein you can share the games on your account 1 to account 2 through Xbox console with the help of the Home Xbox feature.

    1. Sign in to your account 1.

    2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.

    3. Select Profile & system > Settings > General > Personalization, and then select My home Xbox.

    4. Check "Make this as My Home Xbox".

    When you're done you will be able to play the games that you own on account 1 using your account 2.

    New Minecraft launcher won't connect since I changed my main alias from my Microsoft account.

    When Minecraft stopped working, I used my Microsoft account. And this issue happened after I changed my main alias from E-Mail 2 to E-Mail 1. I can play Minecraft if I log in with my E-Mail 2.

    I purchased Minecraft on my Mojang account before the migration, but I don't use my mojang account and that Microsoft account that was migrated to.

    With my Mojang account (E-Mail 1) migrated to Microsoft account (E-Mail 4) I bad the Java Edition. With my first Microsoft account (E-Mail 1, now 3) I had Minecraft Bedrock Edition. And with the other MIcrosoft account (E-Mail 2, now 1) I have both Java and Bedrock.

    I purchased Minecraft Bedrock Edition on my Microsoft Account (E-Mail 1, now 3) from the Microsoft Store and I purchased Minecraft Bedrock Edition on my Microsoft account (E-Mail 2, now 1) from the Microsoft Store but the Java Edition I purchased from minecraft.net. On my Mojang account (E-Mail 1, now migrated to Microsoft Account with E-Mail 3) I bought Minecraft Java from minecraft.net.

    Can't use Game Pass Ultimate under a different account than the PC's primary account.

    Hi lystalex,

    The new Xbox (Beta) app on PC for the Xbox Game Pass for PC, included with Game Pass Ultimate, and the Xbox Console Companion app uses the account logged into the Microsoft Store app, not Windows, for subscription and game license verifications. Log
    in normally to Windows with Account #1. Then, open the Microsoft Store from your Start menu, and
    in the upper right corner, click on your account picture and sign out from Account #1. Sign in to Account #2, and from there the Xbox (Beta) app should recognize Account #2 and allow you to start installing games. Make sure you are also signed in to Account
    #2 on the Xbox (Beta) app, but it should automatically do it once you sign in to the right account on the Microsoft Store.

    Sign in to Account #2 in the Microsoft Store and then let us know if it allows you to install games while logged into Account #1 for Windows.

    Transfer of gamertag to current microsoft account

    thanks for the reply

    so for clairification

    MS account #1 = account which has all my XBLA purchases and gamertag attached - only used on my xbox. old unused email attached.

    MS account #2 = newer account which I use for Windows 8 and on my Surface. Has some purchases but nothing critical - This is the account I would like to use as it is attached to my current email address, has some purchases on it and is completely setup on
    my surface and windows 8 computer.

    Is it possible to transfer my purchases and gamertag from accout #1 to account #2?

    I was told by xbox phone support that if i follow this process all of my purchases and gamertag would be transferred.

    Can I switch my gamertag to a different Microsoft account?"

    support.xbox.com/.../manage-microsoft-account

    Is this correct?
