  1. Different gamer tags on Xbox live and microsoft account


    Had xbox live for years. Just created a microsoft account using a different email because Microsoft wouldn't recognize the old email I had created the account with. When I did microsoft attached it to a gamer tag that I have no idea where it came from.
    Doesn't belong to my account. How do i get the two accounts linked up so I can see my gamer tag under microsoft. I changed the email address on the Xbox to the same one used for Microsoft account but they still wont link up? HELP!!!

    :)

    Gamer tag to MS account

    I am not sure how it happened. I already had a Microsoft account. When I got my xbox I created an account and got a gamer tag while setting up my xbox. I signed up for xbox live from my xbox using my existing gamer tag and Microsoft account. I then went
    to xbox live and signed in using my Miicrosoft account, and for some reason when I did this a new gamer tag was created and associate to my Microsoft account. So, now when I log into xbox live I see one gamer tag. But on my xbox I have a different gamer
    tag.

    one microsoft account with my gamer tag, another account for my windows 8.1. link them?

    Also, i cant delete the gamer tag that is on THIS email adress if that makes a difference. Ideally id just delete this xbox live gamer tag and then change the email from my real account to this email. but I also cant find a way to delete a gamer tag/xbox
    live account

    Recover gamer tags on Xbox 360 after the hard drive as deleted.

    Yes they were live accounts that's why they had gamer tags. A few years ago you can set up a gamer tag on the Xbox without the link to a Microsoft account so how do you recover these old gamer tags without a Microsoft account?
