I created my xbox live/Microsoft account about two years ago, and connected it to my gmail account. Last year a little after Christmas I deleted the gmail account because of personal issues. Nothing happened to my Xbox live account and I resumed playing.
I wanted to sign into Microsoft and it told me, "you haven't been here in a while." so It sent my gmail account a code to sign in and I realized I couldn't access it. I signed in with the security question. I also decided to switch my email to my yahoo account
that is still active but it said, "you cannot change your email." This has caused difficulties with signing in on different consoles and devices. What can I do?
You have to create a NEW microsoft account at account.live.com. After that, DO NOT SIGN INTO XBOXLIVE with it.
Sign into your console as kinshi57, go to setting hub on the dashboard, select account, select account, move two tiles to the right, select account security, select change microsoft account, go from there.
IMPORTANT: if you want to use an email you already have, you can, just make sure when you turn it into a microsoft account that IT DOES NOT have an @hotmail.com or @live.com identifier on the end of it.
This change will go into effect as soon as you change it, it will immediately become the new email and password to log into Kinshi57. Have fun, and make sure you read EVERYTHING correctly, don't rush it.
