    PC profile different from Microsoft Account profile, can't update


    My PC using Windows 10 Home has an old @hotmail address as the administrator and my Microsoft account profile has two @gmail accounts one is an alias and an Xbox account. I want both my PC and my overall Microsoft account to recognize each other. But when I try to add the @hotmail account to the overall Microsoft account as an alias, I get an error message that basically says that domain is already being used. How can I marry these accounts or solve this problem. I'm not that Windows saavy and I'm worried about changing my PC administrator account and replacing it with one of the @gmail

    :)

  3. difference between microsoft account and user profile

    Any created user will have a user profile, regardless of whether they use a local account or a Microsoft account.
    Deleting a user account (removing them) from a PC does not delete the Microsoft Account you setup online. The user profile for that user is gone "on that PC" though as far as I know.
    Deleting your Microsoft Account online, has no effect on the e-mail account you used with it. As far as I know anyway. I don't use Hotmail though. I use my ISP provided pop3 account. And I've changed that in my Microsoft Account when I switched ISP's.

    profile/gamertag

    Hi Fiona,

    The email address that you used to create your child's Xbox Live account should be the same as the email address that you will use to log in on Windows 10. Once you are logged in to the same email address, it will show the same Xbox Profile, gamerscore and
    achievements.

    To better assist you with your concern, please clarify the following information:

    • Is there an email address attached to your child's account on the Xbox 360?
    • Did you create a new Microsoft Account or email address for the Child account online?

    If the child account on Xbox 360 is not attached to an email address, follow the steps on this

    link
    to connect an offline profile to a Microsoft Account and join Xbox Live.

    If it is already connected to an email address in your Xbox 360, you can go to this

    link
    and follow the steps to change the email.

    Keep us updated with the results after performing the suggested solutions above.
