De-associating Email Address

Hi I accidentally made this account and would like to use the email address with my other account. Is there any way you can delete this account or immediately remove the email address so I can add it to my other one? I'd really like to use Smartglass with my actual account.

Hi there, the only way that I can see that you will accomplish this would need for you to switch the email on the current account that you are posting with another microsoft account which would take 30 days for you to be able to change it.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

You can change your Windows Account, associated with the profile on your console. To do this, simply follow these steps:

 

1.) Sign in to the account you wish to alter, then press the middle silver button on your controller  
2.) Press RB twice!
3.) Go down, and select 'account management'  
4.) Go across twice, and select 'Account security'
5.) Select 'Change Microsoft account'
6.) Select Yes, enter the password for the email address shown (that is assigned to that account)
7.) Enter the email address you wish to change it to, and enter the password for that email address.

 

Hope this helps!

For security purposes, account creation, and downloading a gamertag puts in a 30 day rule that stops being able to change the WLID.

I AM NOT A MICROSOFT EMPLOYEE NOR FORUM MODERATOR. However I do know a lot about acct recovery.
