    Delete Xbox Gamertag from Microsoft account without deleting Microsoft account


    I have a secondary Microsoft account that has an unused Xbox Gamertag associated with it.

    I would like to remove / delete the unused Xbox gamertag, but I don't want to delete / close the Microsoft account.

    In the end I would like my Microsoft account to have no Xbox gamertags.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks.

    :)

    You can't remove the Xbox account from your Microsoft account, I am sorry to say.

    How to delete a Xbox Gamertag from a Microsoft Account - without deleting the Microsoft Account

    Hi there,

    Regrettably, there is not a way to remove the Gamertag from your account. The only way to potentially do this, is to pay for several Gamertag changes and to hope nobody takes your original one, once it's
    out in the wild.

    You will have to supply another email address when attempting to add the Gamertag you want, to it.

    Best,

    L

    How to delete a Xbox Gamertag from a Microsoft Account - without deleting the Microsoft Account

    Hi,

    thanks for the quick reply.

    And I would love to add the email that I want as a secondary one. But since it's connected to the secondary account, it is not possible for me to connect it to my primary account. That's the problem that I have right now.

    When I try to add my email there is always this information that pops up - "This e-mail address is part of a reserved domain.
    Enter a different e-mail address."

    What can I do to fix this?

    How to delete a Xbox Gamertag from a Microsoft Account - without deleting the Microsoft Account

    Hello VSVP,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. You can add the email you want on your main account as a secondary email. If you delete the account all is gone. There is no way to just remove the gamer tag unless you pay to have it changed. Here are
    a few links that will help you.

    1. To close the account--https://support.xbox.com/my-account/microsoft-account/cancel-microsoft-account
    2. add email to account--https://support.xbox.com/my-account/security/add-security-contact-information
    3. how to change gamer tag--https://support.xbox.com/my-account/manage-gamertag-and-profile/change-xbox-live-gamertag
    We recommend just add the email you want as a secondary email to your main account.

    Thanks,

    Brad
