How do I get back my user name. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My user name is mijcar.  However, with all the garbage about using Live to establish an email link for using Technet, I have somehow lost that user name.  I am not allowed to use it with this account.

    But more incredulous is terms of programming-dysfunction is that when I asked for Mijcar, I was not provided a method for linking that user name to this current account.  I was told the name was not available, but should have been given a way of accessing it.

    The original link for "mijcar" was to a no longer existent hotmail account -- another example of a huge programming incompetency, a site wherein millions of perfectly good email addresses have been lost and will remain infinitely inaccessible, even to the original user.  Only Microsoft ...

    For now, I really would like to get back my original user name - no one else is using it and it shouldn't go to waste.  Is there any way to launch a "forgot my email address" from a user name, instead of vice-versa?
