How to get live id from display name? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today I wanted to change my display name to my actual name, but then I got this error message:

    "This display name is already in use. Please choose another display name"

    When I tried to find out who's this mysterious guy using my name, I found out it was actually myself several years ago obviously using another account. Unfortunately I didn't know that I once had another live id, neither do I know now what this live id could be.

    Is there a way to find out the live id from the display name, or to set it back, to delete it, or whatever other solution?
