How to Change Your Xbox One Gamertag | Once For Free


When you first sign up for a Microsoft account, you're assigned a gamertag: a one-of-a-kind nickname that other players can identify you by.

But over time, your assigned gamertag might not reflect your true gaming personality anymore. Luckily, changing your Xbox One's gamertag is free - at least, the first time you change it.

How to change your gamertag on your Xbox One

1. From the Xbox One's Home menu, press the Xbox button on your controller.

2. Navigate to the System tab at the far right of the menu, highlight "Settings," and press the A button.

3. Select "Personalization" in the left-hand menu, then navigate to the right-hand menu. Select "My Profile" and press A.

4. Select "Customize profile" and press A.

5. Move your cursor up to your gamertag and press A.

6. From here, you can select a new gamertag from a list of suggestions, or type in a new one using the controller.

7. Once you've entered the gamertag you want and have received confirmation that this gamertag is available (that is, not currently in use by another person), select "Confirm" and press A to finalize the change.

Your gamertag can be changed once for free. If you want to change it more than once, you'll be charged a fee in order to change the gamertag - $9.99 (in US dollars) for one change.

Note, though, that if your gamertag contains language that could be viewed as abusive, harmful, or otherwise inappropriate, Microsoft may change your gamertag without any prior notice.
