    Using other Microsoft accounts


    So I recently bought a Windows PC and made a Microsoft account forgetting I used one for my Xbox account and now I can't sign into the Xbox app as it is for another Microsoft account, is there a way I can change the Microsoft account linked to my Xbox
    account, or anything else I can do instead

    :)

    Using other Microsoft accounts

    Hello!

    Thanks for reaching out to us here on the forums with this situation. I understand you're having issues with your Xbox Profile being on a different Microsoft Account than you'd like it to be. Unfortunately you aren't able to add Xbox Profile components to
    any other Microsoft Account. The one similar option would involve adding and removing Microsoft Account Alias' but I would recommend you
    Contact Xbox Customer Support for assistance with that. It basically would only change the login email for the account but there are a few factors that could cause problems, such
    as which domain the email is under whether its an Outlook.com or other Microsoft email. Hope this helps

    How can I transfer my Microsoft account to a new account

    Hi Franco0404!

    This may help but you can use the following link (https://support.xbox.com/en-US/my-account/microsoft-account/change-email-sign-in-for-microsoft-account) for
    directions to change the email address that is associated with your Microsoft Account. The problem is if you use this account for other things like Office 365, etc. If you don't just want to change the sign in email you may need to reach out and chat or speak
    with support at http://support.xbox.com/en-US/contact-us

    Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions!

    Deleting an Xbox account without a console

    Is the Microsoft Account something you use for other purposes? Because if not, I would start over with a new Microsoft Account from
    http://signup.live.com using the correct data, and then use that to create a new Xbox LIVE account at
    http://xbox.com , since Microsoft Accounts will not allow an effective change of birthdate on an existing account.
