    I have a microsoft account for a new xbox one but when I sign in I see only an older account for an xbox 360 which was discontinued in 2014

    The profile is the same for the Xbox one and 360. Unless you make an entirely new profile all the info will follow you.

    Help

    When i set the xbox up i got a default account ‘summersquid’ i then made another account ‘letjord’ i have since removed ‘summersquid’ from my xbox and now only have ‘letjord’ i use the same email that i sign into the letjord account that i use to sign into
    the xbox app or my microsoft account but when i do so it just comes up with the ‘summersquid’ account?

    I have been on my microsoft account and checked to see if there is any other emails but there is only the one email linked to the account which is the one i sign into my main account with but when i use that same email for my microsoft account it signs me
    into ‘summersquid’

    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.

    Child account becoming Adult account

    Yes, I use my microsoft account to sign into my xbox live account. I also have the xbox app on windows 10, and am definitely logged into the same live account (although I cannot see my mother's account on the xbox app, while I can see it on the console).
    If I go to settings, it shows my microsoft account.

    The thing is, my microsoft account existed without being connected to a family before I created my xbox one live account. It seems that it was only linked to a family when I made my xbox live account, so it seems to be only tied to a family there.

    Instructions on how to move Xbox live gamertag to another hotmail account.

    Hi Bigsease30,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums, I'd be happy to answer that.

    Unfortunately, you cannot merge or transfer a gamertag with it's contents to another email address. If you have full access to the older Hotmail email with the gamertag (ex. you know the password), then you simply just need to add that account to your
    new Xbox. You will need to manage your Xbox profile using the older Microsoft Account email. You can continue using your primary email for other services, but your Xbox profile is tied to that older email and can only be changed to another email as a sign
    in option using an email that is not currently in use by an active Microsoft Account. Keep in mind that removing any Microsoft related emails (alias) from a Microsoft account and changing to another one, will permanently delete the removed email account and
    any associated messages or associations.

    If your primary email is not set up to a Microsoft account, then technically you can add that email as an alternate email alias to your older Microsoft account and set it as the primary sign in option. You could then choose to leave the older email
    on the account as a secondary sign in option or remove it and permanently delete the older email account. If your primary email is already being used by a Microsoft account, then this will not work and since they're both Hotmail, your primary email more than
    likely already has a Microsoft account.

    I hope this answers your question!
