I wanted to take my private email off my xbox account which is shared with family.
So I opened another .live account, but somehow have already another gamer tag.
how can I switch my original gamer tag to the new account?
Go to settings and select Account.
Scroll right to Your Information and select Account Security.
Select Microsoft account (Your Windows Live ID is your Microsoft account.)
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.
Enter the password for the Microsoft account that is currently associated with your gamertag and select Sign in.
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.
Select Yes, change to change the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live account.
Select Update Contact Information to update your contact information or Done to finish.

It sounds like the Microsoft account you are trying to change it to already has a Gamertag associated with it correct?
If this is the case, the
Change MSA article should be of great help here when shuffling Microsoft accounts and Gamertags to different profiles.
