    Xbox live and accidental account


    I have an xbox gamertag that i've used for years, that i started with a dummy email. i forgot the info for that email, and it was deactivated for inactivity years ago. When i got a new computer and a surface, i had to make a new microsoft account using my
    current email. there was some confusion, and a random xbox gamertag was started for this new email. I want to remove that random gamertag associated with my email address so i can link my current email address with my actual gamertag, but from what i can tell
    the random one is bound to my email forever blocking me from linking the accounts. I DO NOT want to make another dummy email, nor do i want this ridiculous gamertag associated with my email address, just unlink the random one so i can merge my real one with
    my current email.

    :)

    Quantum Break PC/Preorder Codes Not Working

    Hey Hottub Cowboy -

    Are there any other Xbox Live accounts on your Xbox One console that may have accidentally been redeemed on? Or is your Xbox Live account on a friend's Xbox One where they may have been accidentally redeemed?

    Keep us posted! :)

    WLID is associated to different gamertag

    Sounds like you accidentally created a different account with your hotmail. All you need to do is follow

    these steps
    to associate a new email with the account you accidentally created.

    Just so I am understanding things correctly.

    1. You have a gamertag that you setup with a dummy email account that is no longer active we will call this A1

    2. You then bought a new computer and surface you used your current email address that is active and it created a new gamertag for you. We will call this A2

    What you are wanting to do is put the gamer tag on A1 on to the email address that is now associated with your computer and surface.

    So if I have this all right and as long as A2 email is not a MS server email (outlook, Hotmail, live, msn) then it is going to be possible but you will need to have access to both accounts at account.microsoft.com so in other words you will need to have
    the email and MS account password for both accounts and unfortunately you will need to create a dummy account. Hopefully you will have not of purchased anything yet on the new account also.

    Basically the ONLY thing that would be able to be done is move the email address from A2 to A1 as far as any purchases go they would stay with the account that made the purchases.

    So basically this is what you would need to do.

    1. Sign into A2 at account.live.com/addassocid this will probably ask you to verify the account by sending a verification code to any security proof that you have on the account once you verify the account then it will bring up a screen that will give you
    2 choices create a new MS email (outlook) or use an existing Non-MS (gmail, Yahoo, ISP) email address that is NOT already another MS account.

    DO NOT DO THIS NEXT STEP IF THE EMAIL THAT YOU ARE USING IS A MS SERVER EMAIL IF YOU DO YOU WILL LOSE ACCESS TO THAT EMAIL FOREVER AND NEVER BE ABLE TO GET IT BACK.

    2. Choose create a new (dummy) account and create one. Make this new email the primary email on this account. ONLY DO THE NEXT step if it is not a MS server email. Once the new dummy email is the primary email you can then remove the other email from the
    account which will then free it up to put onto the other original gamertag account.

    3. Once you free up that email you can then sign out of A2 and sign into A1 at account.live.com/addassocid you may have to again verify ownership for this account and then once it brings up the screen to create a new or use an existing email you would choose
    use an existing email and put in the email you just took off of A2 and put it in here it will then send you a verification email that you do have access to that email and once you verify it you can then make that email the primary email and remove the old
    email from that account.

    Now keep in mind all this is doing is changing what email you have associated with your account it is not changing anything else like security proofs, billing addresses, phone numbers, payment options.

    Hey there!

    Sorry to hear you are running into these problems with the account alias. It looks like in this case you are not able to add the new alias as the primary to your older account as it has already been linked to an Xbox account.

    Go ahead and take a look at the following support article for all possible ways to update your account alias.

    How to change the email address associated with your Microsoft account

    I hope this helps.

    Unless you know the data and you have access in both accounts, this would be difficult to commit as change.
