    Transfer a XBOX Live Account to another Live ID or email


    I like many people have this problem.

    My son grew up playing xbox on my live id. In other words, his gamertag is linked to my email address.I have had my email address since the beginning of time back in the late 90s when I worked for Microsoft (ironically on accounts in Windows Live / MSN).
    It is linked with my alumni, family, onedrive, skype etc. My son is grown up and i need to transfer his gamertag to him. I cannot make him primary on the account as that will allow him to login to all my services and not have his own subscriptions. Since i
    know a little how the backend works on this I need to decouple my passport user id from his xbox live profile / gamertag. Theoretically it can be done. I see countless people in the same situation.

    Do not provide the "make him the primary at accounts.live.com" that doesn't work because my account which becomes seconday still shares the same password and services.

    If I try to delete my account from access after making him primary it says the account will no longer be able to send or receive email. It is linked to every one of my financial institutions so that cannot work.

    I want to take a new live id or email and provision his gamertag to it so i can carry on with life on my account. How do I do this?

    :)

    Before you can change the Windows Live ID associated with a child account, you must provide the Windows Live ID information for the adult account with parental control.
