We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
So you cant exactly delete an Xbox Account, you can close it or merge it with another account, heres some instruction on how to do this, sorry for the massive post by the way, these are Microsofts official instructions:
What you need to know about closing your Microsoft account
We’re sorry to see you go, and we want to make sure that you have everything you need to know before you close your Microsoft account.
You’ll have 60 days after you close your account to change your mind. Microsoft permanently removes the account after 60 days, and you lose access to all services that require your Microsoft account email address and password for sign-in. This includes
any content, games, applications or OneDrive content that require you to be signed in to Xbox Live to access.
Closing your Microsoft account does not cancel any of the subscriptions you have associated with it.
If you close your Microsoft account, you won’t be able to sign in on your Xbox console, even if you previously saved your email address and password to the console.
By closing your Microsoft account, you’ll no longer be able to manage your child’s parental controls.
You can choose to:
Allow your child to continue to use Xbox Live. Your child’s account will need to be associated to another parent account and receive parental consent through that account to use the Xbox Live service. For more information, see Add
a new member to your Xbox One family.
Note Family accounts apply only to the Xbox One console or to families you’ve set up to manage your child’s Internet experience at familysafety.microsoft.com.
Before you close your account
Cancel all open subscriptions. If you don’t, we’ll continue billing for them.
To cancel your Xbox Live and Xbox Music subscriptions, follow these steps:
Sign in at the top of any xbox.com page.
Under your account name at the top of any xbox.com page, click or tap My Account.
If prompted, provide your password.
Click Cancel automatic payment.
Complete the short survey.
Most, but not all of your other subscriptions can be removed at commerce.microsoft.com. If you don’t see that option for the services you use, contact that service directly.
Use up your account balances. Any balances you have from a Microsoft or Xbox gift card may be lost when you close your account. Check your balance.
How to close your account
Once you’ve taken care of your subscriptions and balances, follow these steps.
Go to accounts.live.com and sign in to your Microsoft account. Use the email address and password associated with the account to do this.
Click or tap Security and privacy. You may need to verify that you’re the account holder by receiving and entering a security code.
Choose Manage advanced security.
Scroll to the bottom of the page to Close your account.
Review the recommended actions to take before closing your account. Select Next.
Select the checkboxes to acknowledge that you have read each item.
Click Mark account for closure. This confirms you understand that you will lose access to all sites, services, and data associated with your Microsoft account in 60 days.
Changed your mind about closing your Microsoft account?
If you change your mind within 60 days, all you have to do is go back to account.live.com and sign in with your email address and password. You’ll be asked to receive and enter a security code so that
we know we’re opening the account for you and only you.
Note the following:
Any time still remaining on your subscription will be available to you, but you won’t be able to get back the time that passed while your account was closed.
If you turned off auto renewal on your Xbox Live or Xbox Music subscription, you’ll need to turn it back on.
If you cancelled any subscriptions outright, or if your subscription time has run out, you’ll need to re-purchase the subscription.
Your Xbox profile, along with all games, music, and video associated with it will be available to you the next time you sign in to your console.
