  1. Changing primary email for Xbox account?


    Hello, I am in the process of selling my Xbox and the account mainly due to not having time to play anymore due to work. I have a buyer but the email associated to my Xbox account is my personal one and my computer is also linked to my Microsoft account,
    so I am currently trying to figure out how to change Xbox account email to a different one so I can keep my current Microsoft account but I am having trouble finding out how to do this! If anyone knows i would greatly appreciate it!

    :)

    Merge two accounts?

    Hi there,

    you can't merge accounts itself or fully move the Xbox Live Account to a different Microsoft Account, but something that could work for you is changing the primary email address for the Microsoft Account.

    My assumption what steps might be required are:

    - Change the primary email on the New Unused Xbox Account account to something else (you might need a new MS account/email for that) so that the Wanted email address is no longer attached to a Microsoft Account.

    - Change the primary email on the Old Xbox account to the new wanted email address, so that that Wanted email address can be used to sign in to the Xbox main account.

    See this link for the full information on how to change the primary email address on a Microsoft Account

    Just changed my E-mail but can't use the old one to change E-mail on another Xbox account.

    That wasn't what I meant, what I meant is how long do I need to wait to use my primary e-mail on my primary xbox live account since I've already changed my primary email with some secondary email. Do I again need to wait for a month until I can use my primary
    email to replace the email on my primary xbox live account ?

    Transferring sons Xbox gamertag from my Hotmail account to my Xbox .gmail account.

    There is a process to change the primary email on a Microsoft account.

    First add it as an alias do not make it primary. Make sure it works correctly to sign in. Promote that email to primary and again validate. Last remove the former primary address from the account.

    You can search on how to change primary email on MS account and should find a step by step guide.

    Changing Primary Email addresses

    Yeah, this is a real drag that you can't do this on Xbox One. I really don't want to rehook the 360 just to do this. I can't believe there isn't a way to do this on the web!

    Changing Primary Email addresses

    I guess essentially you want to change the email associated with your gamertag. Have you tried the steps in this link

    support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account
    What steps have you tried?

    I think the email change can only be done on the 360 right now, you can try it on the xbox one to see if they have similar menus

    Basically:

    1. Go here accounts.live.com and hit sign up and use your gmail

    2. On your xbox sign in using your Xbox Live gamertag.

    3. Go to settings and select Account.

    4. Scroll right to Your Information and select Account Security

    5. Select Microsoft account

    6. Select yes

    7. Enter the password for the Microsoft account that is currently associated with your gamertag and select Sign in.

    8. Enter the email address and the password for the new Microsoft account that you want to associate with your gamertag, and then select Sign in.

    9. Select Yes, change the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live account.

    10. Select Update Contact Information to update your contact information or Done to finish.
