    Microsoft Gamertag Email Change


    Like many others, my parents made my Xbox account using their own email address, and I am now grown and would like to associate it to my own email address. The reason I am making this post is to clarify points I still do not understand and see if there is
    a way for my specific case to be resolved.

    My parents email address used is a yahoo.com email address, but when used to create my Xbox account it automatically created a Microsoft account for them as well. Since they use yahoo and not outlook/hotmail, there is no issue with deleting that Microsoft
    account, if that makes a difference. I know most people with this issue have two active microsoft accounts and use outlook.

    My question is, can I change the email address associated with the Xbox account to my own email address (I use outlook). I want to keep the Xbox account with its data, not just the gamertag, since I have bought games, have achievements, etc. My own Microsoft
    account does have another gamertag that I do not care for, not sure if that makes it even more impossible. Is there even a way to get rid of an Xbox account from a Microsoft account?

    Has anyone ever been successful at a workaround to this very common issue? I have not tried calling yet, but if anyone thinks they would help I will give customer service a call.

    :)

    Windows Live ID Issue!

    To remove that gamertag that is connected to your 'main' email (Microsoft Account), just change the connected gamertag connected to a new Microsoft account.

    -

    So first free up your 'correct' email address by moving the connected gamertag to a new Microsoft Account

    and after that you should be able to change the 'email' (Microsoft Account) for your main gamertag to your 'correct' email address (Microsoft Account)

    my email adress

    Hi Lion,

    In order to change out the primary email for a gamertag to another one, the gamertag has to be removed. If there is a gamertag attached to the email, then it will only allow the new email to be connected to the gamertag as a secondary email instead of a
    primary email.

    Basically, it is going to be like musical chairs. Move each of the gamertags to another email to free the email. Create an account that will not be used on a daily basis. Move the gamertag from the email that is going to be used. Then it will free up the
    email to use with the main gamertag.

    Follow the steps in this link:

    I hope this helps ^‿^

    Microsoft Gamertag Email Change

    OK

    There is NO way to remove a Xbox profile from a Microsoft (MS) account once it has been added to the account.

    You can change what email address is used to sign into the account though.

    Since your current MS account is an Outlook account you will NOT be able to use that email address to be put onto the Yahoo MS account.

    As long as your parents do not use that MS account for anything else to do with MS then this really would be an easy thing to do.

    Sign into the yahoo account at account.live.com/addassocid this will give you an option to use an existing Non-MS email (yahoo, gmail. ISP email) or create a new MS email (Outlook, Hotmail)

    Once you add a new email at this site you can then make that email the primary email on the account and remove the Yahoo email from the account.

    All this is doing is changing the email that is used to sign into the account with. everything else will be the same.

    So if you are wanting to change like the payment options, security proofs, mailing addresses stuff like that you would still have to go in and change all that information also.
