    Moving gamer tag to child’s Microsoft account.

    You would have to change the gamertag on the current account to something different to free up that gamertag.

    Then you would need to change the gamertag on the childs account to the freed up gamertag.

    Keep in mind that all this will do is change the gamertag.

    If he has used that account and gamertag for games the game progress will not go over with the gamertag.

    Any purchases for games or game add ons will not be transferred over.

    There is a charge for changing the gamertag also if you chose that gamertag at the time of the account being opened.

    The charge would be 9.99 USD

    Is there anyway to limit playing time when child is playing using my account

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    He actually has a child account, but his 'gamer tag' is associated with my account. From what I have researched, you cannot move a gamer tag to a child account on an Xbox One. If that is not correct, any references to how to do it would be greatly appreciated.
    If it matters, and I know it does for Xbox 360, I have an Office 365 subscription on my MS account. On a 360, that prevents moving gamer tags.

    Move gamer tag to child account

    I need a similar solution. I set up the Xbox account for my son's Xbox years ago & would like to transfer everything gaming related to an account for him.

    Occasionally, he has trouble logging in when going to a relatives house & I have to tell him my password - it's frustrating. I've had a hotmail account for over 15 years and have many important things tied to this email address & login.

    Created a Child Account in Family settings and he has now lost all his achievements and Gold access?

    I have the same problem. Does anyone know if WITHIN the same account, the Gamer Tag and associated history can be moved to a new Child Profile?
