Combining MSDN accounts RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the past (2005) I created an account with a particular display name, I have since forgotten the password to access that account but have another (this one).  Ideally I would like to close the other account, and claim that display name.  Please could you assist me in resolving this.  The old account has 0 activity.

    Kind Regards,

  • Try emailing to fissues at microsoft dot com explaining your problem. They may be able to change name on your original account to something else and so you would be able to use your name with the new account.
