How do I link or merge my 2 Microsoft accounts I created with the same email address by mistake?
Answer
Answer

Hello Schmunic,

 

From your description, may I confirm whether you’d like to merge an Office 365 for Business account with a Microsoft account (outlook.com/Hotmail.com)? As far as I know, considering information security, after June 2013, it is no longer possible to link/merge a Microsoft account or a non-Microsoft account to an existing Microsoft account, if you want to change how you login or how your name appears to other person, you could try to add an alias to your Microsoft account, for detailed information, please refer to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028404/microsoft-account-linking-accounts

 

Besides, you could also try to change the email address for your Microsoft account.

 

If I have misunderstood your concern or you need further assistance, please feel free to correct me and share more details with me.

 

Best Regards,

Betty
