    I click on Games and want to log into my xbox live gamertag but it logs me into a randon xbox live gamertag but I can not find a place to log out and sign into mine. Is there something im missing or can you not log in and out of a gamertag?

    When I click on the Games tile I am automatically signed in. Does the top right corner say you're signed in? Mine is all the same on Xbox, WinPhone7 and RT.

    I thought that it logged you into your primary Live account, which need to be the same one used for Xbox Live.

    My xbl email is an old one I used a long time ago that they won't let me change. I use a different email for everything now which is what I use for my surface rt. I don't use the email the gamertag is used with.

    If I recall correctly doesn't the initial setup have a recommendation for which email account to use if you have multiple accounts?

    You can link multiple Microsoft Accounts (formally Live Accounts), I've done this with two accounts.

    know when I setup my wife's Surface RT we had to reset the tablet to add her Windows Live account. I called tech support via the MS Surface website; it was easy.
