    My son’s Xbox profile is linked to an email I no longer have access to. Is it better to just factory reset and start a new Microsoft account?

    Or are there any other options?

    :)

    How do I remove accounts from Xbox as linked with another Microsoft account

    Hi Rebecca. My name is Kyle and I'm an independent advisor.

    If you still have access to the Microsoft account, you can change it's email from account.microsoft.com

    Head to Your Info > Edit Account Info. From here you can add a new email, set it as the primary alias, then remove the old email.

    If you can't access it due to the email, you can attempt to recover the account using this form: https://account.live.com/acsr

    Thanks,
    Kyle

    Account Help - Removing Linked Console -

    Hi PhilthyTech67,

    I'm a bit confused on your question, but I think you're asking how do you remove your account from another console. If that is the case, the answer is you can't. Only someone at the console can remove an account from the console. If your account is on that
    console, and you do not have access to it, I would suggest resetting your Microsoft Password using this link. Resetting your password will block any access from your account on that
    console.

    Error in upgrade account or change prefference

    Hi there,

    -

    The only way to remove an xbox live account from a Microsoft Account is by moving the xbox live account to another Microsoft Account.

    See this link for the how to:

    -

    Be aware that an account can only be moved when of profile has been on a console for at least 30 days without being downloaded.

    My son is now 18 and wants his own xbox account - how do we split up the account ? (away from the family. ie. me)

    I appreciate the detailed information and just a friendly reminder though that there is no option to split or remove an Xbox profile from one Microsoft account to another. Another option is changing the Microsoft alias but that may cause issues with your Microsoft account itself.

    Please refrain from making any changes such as removing the alias, kindly check the link below for reminders.

    For your reference, you can check this link: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/account-pro...

    Need help!!!!

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    Perhaps you could link another EA account to your Microsoft account but you would have to unlink the accounts first to link another one. As the account linking service is external, it is up to the EA to do this.
