Windows Live ID change?

I don't want to use my old Email address anymore, so what I want to do is move my gamer tag from an old Windows Live account to a new one.

Is that possible?

Indeed, it is possible.

Go on your xbox, go to the "My XBox" tab, scroll right once to go to your profile, then go down to "Manage Account" and you should be able to change both your email address and password there.

But first you need to create the new email address, go on hotmail or live.com and create it there.

Actually sorry I was a bit hasty.  I saw where you could change your password and all that, but it's not what I needed because I still signed in with my old Windows Live ID.  I basically want a new Windows Live ID but keep my gamer tag profile from this one I'm on now.

Did you follow the steps to change the Live ID associated with your account? You should be able to link a different email address with it.

No sorry I don't know how to do that, aside from that I'm not looking to link a new email address.  Basically right now I'm signing in with (using substitutions) *** Email address is removed for privacy *** it's the one with my gamer tag "c4skitzo".  I have already created a *** Email address is removed for privacy *** and I want to move my gamer tag "c4skitzo" to that Email.  Once the transfer is complete I will be deleting the old *** Email address is removed for privacy *** address and it will no longer exist.  This is why I'm wanting to "strip" the gamer tag from the old Windows Live ID (*** Email address is removed for privacy ***) and place it in the new Windows Live ID (*** Email address is removed for privacy ***).

BTW lol sorry if I come off rude I'm not trying to be, it's easy to assume a bad attitude in text.

You should be able to do what you want, with the step by step guide I posted before, as A@hotmail address will become free.

You can only change the WLID from your console. That can't be done on the website.
