    Changing Microsoft Account and Previous Downloads


    Hello!

    If I change my Microsoft Account for my gamertag on my 360, will I still be able to access all my past downloads such as games and add-ons? I know any money stored on the account will be lost, but it is not clear whether past downloads/purchases will be.

    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    I have xbox one. I immigrated a while ago and my Microsoft account (Not xbox live) was set to my previous country. When I tried changing it, I couldn't. Now I cant download any content because the xbox says not avalible in your location. Please help!

    P.S: I tried doing the Xbox live migration but it didn't work.

    All DLC is linked to the account itself and will be readily available even if you change the email or gamertag.

    gamertag

    Don't start a new account just to change your gamertag. It's 800 microsoft points to change it. If you start a new account, you'll need to re-purchase any downloads that you have already bought if you ever need to re-download them. You can always re-download
    a purchase for no charge if it was already bought on that same account. $10 to change the GT vrs. re-buying all previous downloads, what is worth more?

    Login or password is not valid.

    Well, that's normal for it to take 30 days to change over security proofs, but the password change should be immediate. Please click the link in my previous post to fill in the form to contact a member of the Microsoft Account team. It seems there's something
    more wrong here than just your inability to download your profile.

    Getting games back on my Xbox.

    have you tried speaking to microsoft support and trying to get the previous account back with details of the account?
    Yea the password was changed so they couldnt do anything about it. I believe the email was changed as well.

    Account Deletion and Transfer of certain Licenses

    You can however change the email address associated with your Microsoft account but the account would still be yours. You would just be changing the address used to login. As the previous response says, we are unable to simply transfer some or all of your
    digital licenses to another account. If you want to change the email address used to login to your account I have provided the instructions below for your convenience.

    Change email address to login to your Microsoft account
