  2. Changing account name.

    Well, I have finally decided on a name for my account (this was the live auto-assigned one, but I have one question I couldn't find an answer to.

    If I rename my account do I lose my progress in games? Like my levels for online gaming and my progress in campaigns?

  4. changing account name

    I'm assuming you are referring to the name your Xbox One greets you with when you sign in when it says "Hi, xxxxxxx!". You can change this over at
    https://account.live.com. Under
    Overview select Edit Name. Whatever is entered in the
    First Name field is how the Xbox will greet you. Hope this helps!

    Account name was changed?

    that type of name (random name/number combo) means you got a forced name change as your old one was against the rules. if you want to change it to something else, you will have to pay 10 bucks to change it. FYI do not change it to another name that is
    against the rules as too many force name changes results in perm ban of Live.

    Account name change

    Unfortunately no. The system doesn't see things like spaces or different cases as making a gamertag unique. So you would actually have to change your gamertag to something different and then change it again to make it lowercase. So you would actually have
    to change your gamertag twice (and pay both times).
