Sign up to Microsoft Account using Gmail

Hi everyone, I have a Gmail account and need to set it up as a Microsoft account. This can be done however the option to use an existing email is no longer there and your required to use a outlook / live account.

 

See this link to see how I was told you can do this.

Can you sign up to Microsoft account using Gmail or has this option been removed?

Answer

This worked! I have a Gmail account and when I went to the usual Microsoft Account Sign up page Gmail wasn't even an option (only hotmail, live, and outlook were available). I used this link https://signup.live.com and simply used my normal gmail account where an email address was asked for. After filling out the needed information everything ran smoothly. All I had to do was verify my email. Easy. 

Thanks!
