I signed in with the wrong account on Windows 8. How do I sign out of the incorrect account and match up my real Xbox Games account on Windows 8?

Taken from the official Xbox Live page:

To switch to a different Microsoft account than the one you’re signed in with in your Xbox app—as you’d want to do if your Xbox gamertag is associated with a different Microsoft account (formerly known as a Windows Live ID)—do the following.

Sign in to your PC using a different Microsoft account

On your PC, select the Settings charm. Select More PC settings. Select Users. Under Other users, select an account.

If needed, select Add a user and enter the email address and password for the Microsoft account you want to use.

For me, I had to uninstall & reinstall the games app.

** Edit **

Try This.

  • Press Windows + I
  • Go to "Change PC Settings" at the bottom.
  • Go to "Users"
  • Select "Disconnect Your Microsoft Account"

I've uninstalled and reinstalled, however it automatically logs me back in with the incorrect account. :-( – Brad Leach Aug 23 '12 at 10:54
