  1. Minecraft Nintendo Switch Gamertag change


    I recently got Minecraft on Switch and realized that once I logged in, my gamer tag was randomly generated. I looked online for how to fix it and found some forums on this site, but the links in the response of the ambassador's solution all send me to
    a page about editing a child's Microsoft account which is not what I requested. If anyone could help me with this that would be great

    :)

    Gamertag change for Minecraft on Nintendo Switch

    I tried that, but every time I try to visit account.xbox.com, it automatically takes me to a page about changing your child's Xbox privacy (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...ge-childs-xbox-privacy-online-safety-settings)
    and so I can't sign in. It even happens when I go to Xbox.com and click on "my account"--I get redirected to the same page. I have no idea why this keeps happening. Also, I can't click on "sign in" on the Xbox website.

    I brought up the issue with some friends and they suggested I go on the xbox app and change it from there which it worked. Either way thx for helping me out

    Gamertag change for Minecraft on Nintendo Switch

    Change your gamertag through a web browser:

    1. Go to the Change gamertag page at account.xbox.com.
    2. Sign in using the Microsoft account email address and password associated with your gamertag.
    3. Enter your new gamertag, and then select Check Availability.
    4. Once you find an available gamertag, click Claim it.

      Note If your gamertag was created for you when you initially signed up for Xbox (meaning you did not choose it yourself), you can change it one time for free. Additional Xbox gamertag changes cost extra.
    5. If you created your own gamertag at signup and want to change it, you will be charged (fee varies by region and currency).
