    This is really a Nintendo question. Go to
    and click on Support. Try Parental Controls or perhaps the question should be asked in the Support Forums (link on that page.)

    Hi PerkinP

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    Q: What’s a Microsoft Account and why do I need it for a Nintendo Switch?

    A: A Microsoft Account is a free account you can sign-in on device that allows Minecraft players on Switch to play with others on non-Nintendo devices like iOS, Android, Xbox One and Windows 10 via cross-play, Realms or Servers. Having a Microsoft Account also
    enables the portability of your MINECOINS and marketplace purchases to other devices and platforms. For more information go here (
    To create an account go to

    Q: Now that I have a Microsoft account, how do I sign into it from my Nintendo Switch?

    a. On the Minecraft game home screen, click “Sign in with a Microsoft account”

    b. It’ll bring up a screen to go to:
    with a unique 8 digit code

    c. Enter the URL on another device (PC or Mobile phone)

    d. Follow the instructions on the website by entering the code and complete signing into your Microsoft account.

    Q: How do I find my friends on their Microsoft account?

    a. Now that you’ve signed into your Microsoft account, Click “Play” on the homescreen

    b. Toggle to the right onto the “Friends” tab

    c. Click the button to “Add Friend”

    d. Find friends by entering their Microsoft Gamertag

    Q: I keep entering my friend’s ID into Cross-Platform friends and can’t find them. Why?

    Make sure you are entering your friend’s Gamertag correctly. Please note that you are only able to enter in a player ID for Microsoft’s Gamertag. Other player IDs from other platforms are not supported at this time.

    Mincraft nintendo switch gamertag does not work

    Adding a friend on the Nintendo Switch disallowed on child account?

    Hello. I would like to add myself (the adult in our Microsoft account family) to my son's Friends list on the Nintendo Switch.

    He is already in the Family, and I've been over the Family FAQ to no avail.

    How can I enable him to look up gamertags so he can have friends in Minecraft? It's not in any of the settings. We only even MADE Microsoft accounts so we could try to cross-platform play with the Switch and the in-house computers, and there seems to be no
    way to manage that. This is very frustrating.
