    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft!


    Hi folks!

    I would like to switch my PC to a Microsoft account and not a local one. However, to do this I must first enter a code which Microsoft is suppose to send me via email. But I'm not getting the code! I know I'm putting in the right email, because it's the only one I've ever used.

    Any ideas?

    -Chuck

    EDIT: I use a bellsouth account if that matters. *Huh

    :)

  2. My Minecraft Windows 10 edition code has been stolen

    I never redeemed MCW10 code, because I'm still using Windows 8.1, but few days ago I decided to redeem this, to have this when I'll get Windows 10, but I got a message, that says "This code has been redeemed". I never used any other Microsoft account, someone
    stole this code from my account, I don't know how, or will it be "redeemable" when I'll get W10?

    Moved from: (Microsoft Edge / All other issues / Windows 10)

  3. Apps not installing or updating from the windows phone store in my Lumia 630 with windows8.1

    Hi,

    I'm trying to download and update my apps from the store but I'm continuously getting the error code 80070020! I read about a similar problem before and tried to solve the problem myself by updating the time manually and signing in to my Microsoft account
    and Xbox account and then rebooting my phone! I even did a rest of my phone and then tried all the steps again but its still showing the same error code!

    Please Help!

    Check your junk or spam folders?

  6. Check your security details for you account in a web browser

    Not 100% but I think last time I did this it sent the emails to my secondary email address associated with the account

    I've had this problem when my email provider gets on various spam blacklists. They have to work on getting themselves removed before emails start showing up again. It can be a huge pain. Check your email server against the rbac and other blacklists.

    Brink: Yes, I have checked those and sadly it isn't there. *Sad

    dmholt57: I got an error stating "We're sorry, but something went wrong. Your account wasn't changed to this Microsoft account.
    Code: 0xd0000072

    paulsalter: I can't check the security details without having a code sent to my email. I'm not receiving that code either. *Sad

    Can you have the code sent via text message on your phone instead?

    Are you able to log in to your Microsoft account online to verify that the primary alias email address used to send codes to is correct? It wouldn't be the same as the email address used for the Microsoft account itself.

    Microsoft Account Primary Alias Email Address - Change - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Afterwards, you might see if you are able to view your email for the alias address online as well to see if the message with the code is there.

    1.) Log in to Windows using your local account
    2.) Using a browser, sign in to your Microsoft account, the one you want to use as sign in account on your Windows computer
    3.) Click the Settings wheel top right to open a menu, select Options:


    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft! [​IMG]

    4.) Click Account details:


    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft! [​IMG]

    5.) Click Security & password:


    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft! [​IMG]

    6.) You will now be asked to fill in the email address you have given as your security / secondary email. Microsoft helps you to remember which account that might be by showing two first letters of it, together with the domain part. Fill in the address and click Next:


    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft! [​IMG]

    7.) If you have given your phone number, you will be asked to give 4 last digits of that number. Again Microsoft gives you a hint by given you two of those 4 digits. Click Next when done:


    I'm not getting my code from Microsoft! [​IMG]

    8.) You receive a security code to the email address or phone number you have selected. Enter the code on next page. Now you can continue as told in tutorial to add or remove security emails and phone numbers

    In your case now, the security code you did not find was sent to the email address mentioned above in step 6.

    Shawn, for some reason I have to acquire a code to be able to do any of those things.

    The only things I can view are Basic Info and Related Accounts. *Confused

    Kari, I'm not receiving any emails from Microsoft. I tried what you posted, but when I get to the code verification, that's where I stop because Microsoft isn't wmailing me or I'm not getting there email. *Sad
