How To Change The Email On An Xbox Account


When it comes to email addresses, the vast majority of people have at least one email account on their computer. As a result, it should come as no surprise that a significant number of gamers have a dedicated email address for gaming, especially given the fact that an email address is essential to utilize online activities such as Xbox Live.

Because many of us may alter our primary email address over time, it may be necessary to delete an old email account and replace it with a new one that we use more regularly.

Fortunately, changing the email address linked with your Xbox One is a simple procedure. Remember that you must replace it with another Microsoft email address, such as Hotmail or Outlook, if you want to continue using your old email address.

For whatever reason, you’ve lost your Sign in email address, or you’ve forgotten the password that was associated with it, changing your old password will be a little more complicated.

There are a variety of methods for locating the email address that you used to register for your Xbox account.

With the Xbox console, you can discover your email address by highlighting your Gamer Tag or Gamer ID (depending on your platform).

If this is the case, you can determine your location by doing the following steps:
1. Open the Guide by hitting the Xbox button on your controller.
2. Select the Profile option.
3. Select the Settings option.
4. Select Account from the drop-down menu.
5. Select Sign in, security, and passkey from the drop-down menu.
6. Your email address should be shown under the column under “Show on Home.”
7. Log into your account using the email address you received, or use it to retrieve a forgotten password.
