    Split my xbox account

    Let me start with the backstory. My Microsoft account has been used with the family Xbox account for many years. I never played Xbox, but I had a Microsoft account for office and visual studio, so we used it for the Xbox account. My brother was the one that
    used the Xbox account. The only games on the Xbox account that I have, are Sea of Thieves and Minecraft for Windows 10, both of which are for windows. I have several questions about this.

    1: Are the windows games and achievements connected to my Microsoft account or Xbox account. Meaning, if I transfer my Xbox account to a different email will they stay on my Microsoft account or move with it.

    2: Is there any way that I can send everything on my Xbox account (games, saves, gamerscore) to another account, but keep the windows stats and games on my Microsoft account.

    3: Would it be possible if neither of the other options is possible to wipe my Xbox account of its gamerscore for everything besides the windows games.

    In summary. I want to know if it's possible to send everything besides the windows games from my Xbox account to another account.

    Split my xbox account

    Hello Green,

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums. I'm sorry to inform you the option to transfer saved data, achievements and any/or game purchases from another Microsoft Account will not be possible. We currently do not have an available feature. The one
    step we have available is changing the primary email on the Microsoft account.
    You can however set up home consoleon your main profile.
    Note:If you choose to remove an alias that uses a Microsoft domain such as @hotmail.com, @outlook.com, or @live.com, that alias will be completely deleted and will not be available to sign in to any Microsoft
    services. A Microsoft and Xbox account are one and the same. As there is nothing more I will be locking this thread.

    Hope this helps.

    Splitting an account

    Hello Brian,

    The family account may solve the issue: https://beta.support.xbox.com/help/Family-Online-Safety/child-accounts/add-family-member-on-xbox-one

    Hope I helped you!

    Splitting an account

    They would each need their own accounts in order to be able to sign in at the same time. If they have been playing on the same account until now, it would not be possible to move any progress to a new account.
    Would a family account help remedy this? Would a family account make it possible to by the game once, then allow each child to play the game or does Microsoft for you into buying a game for each child?

    Splitting accounts


    Nope there is no option to split the account, though since you have an xbox one, you can share the games if you created individual accounts for your children including xbox live. though of course, they need to start their progress again with the new accounts.

    I hope that helps.

    Splitting accounts

    Hi there,

    Separate accounts can be created for each user, but you won't be able to transfer their game progress over (unless the game allows that option).

    More on creating accounts can be found here:

    As for sharing a gold subscription - if they are on an gold account's home Xbox One they will be able to share the gold subscriber's subscription. More on that can be found here:


    I hope this helps.
    This is a great option because you as a parent will get weekly status reports on what the child accounts are doing and for how long. You will also get notifications when they purchase items and you can control what they can do and others can see about them.
