You can go to accounts.live.com, login with your existing Microsoft account email and password, as soon as you login the main page you see is the account "overview" or account summary and your current email is listed.  Right below that you should see a hotlink that says "Add or change aliases".  You will probably have to verify yourself with a code they will send to your current email, once you put the code in it will allow you to make changes accordingly.

Hi MRMADDEN2014,

I assume you mean you want to change the email linked to your gamertag?

Here are the steps:

  1. Sign in (on your console) using your Xbox Live gamertag.
  2. Go to settings and select Account.
  1. Scroll right to Your Information and select Account Security.
  2. Select Microsoft account (Your Windows Live ID is your Microsoft account.)
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If you already have another Microsoft account, select Yes.
    • If you don't have another Microsoft account, go to accounts.live.com and click Sign up. After you have another Microsoft account set up, select Yes and continue with the next step.
  4. Enter the password for the Microsoft account that is currently associated with your gamertag and select Sign in.
  5. Enter the email address and the password for the new Microsoft account that you want to associate with your gamertag, and then select Sign in.
  6. Select Yes, change to change the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live account.
  7. Select Update Contact Information to update your contact information or Done to finish.

 

More information is available here, if you need it.

I'm having a similiar issue, I was trying to change my gamertag to a different Microsoft Account , only to find that account had a gamertag (although I don't ever remember creating one for that account) So I created a new account to switch that  out, only it won't let me swap the account, I get to 6, and won't let get to step 7

I've the same issue..

i wanna use another windows live account on my new xbox one..

I have an account already with a gamertag and gold membership since some years but i want to change the xbox gold membership and gamertag to another live account because the new one is my primary account (with skydrive,...)

So how can i handle it on the new xbox dashboard? The one from "karachi king" is the step-by-step guide for the old dashboard...
