1. Click the bar on the upper left of the home screen. If others have already made Xbox One profiles on the machine, then their profile pictures will appear on this bar, highlighted in white in the below picture.

2. Choose "Add new." Clicking the aforementioned bar on the home screen will bring you to a screen that lists all the profiles already set up on the Xbox One. If you want to create a new profile, select "Add new" at the bottom left.

3. Sign in with your Microsoft account. If you have an Xbox Live membership, or an email address ending in "@outlook.com," then you have a Microsoft account. Sign in with the email associated with that account.

MORE: Xbox One Review

If you don't have a Microsoft account, see "Creating a Microsoft account on the Xbox One" at the bottom of this article, then return to step 4.

4. Choose a color. This will be the color scheme for the Xbox home screen.

5. View your completed profile. If you didn't already have an Xbox Live account, the Xbox One automatically generates a username and gamerpic for your account. In the below picture, you can see we were given the name "ManilaThunder82" and the gamerpic of the wizard. If you'd like to choose your own username and picture, you can change them at the home screen (see step TK).

6. Set up Kinect sign-in. The Xbox One will ask you to identify your face on its Xbox One camera. If there's more than one person in the camera's view, raise your hand to identify yourself. You can also choose "Sign in manually" if you don't want to use the Kinect.

7. Go to the Home screen. You can do this by pressing the circular button with the stylized X in the center of the Xbox One controller, or by saying, "Xbox, go home."

8. Click on your Profile bar. This will be a vertical rectangle that has your gamerpic at the top. It's marked with a white outline in the below picture. Clicking this bar will bring you to a page with information about your Xbox One profile, your friends, messages and achievements.

9. Click "My profile." This will let you make adjustments to your Xbox One profile.

10. Adjust your gamerpic and gamertag. You can do this by selecting "Set gamerpic" or "Set gamertag" on this screen. (The latter is marked below with a black rectangle.) You can change your gamerpic as many times as you'd like, but you only get one free chance to change your gamertag; you'll have to pay for any subsequent changes.

11. (Optional) Change your gamertag. If you choose to change your gamertag from the auto-generated one created for you at setup, you'll come to this screen that suggests six more auto-generated options. Pick one of them, or select "Make my own" at the bottom.

12. Confirm your gamertag choice. After typing in or selecting your new gamertag, confirm your selection by clicking "Sounds good."

Creating a Microsoft account on the Xbox One

If you don't have a Microsoft account, you can create one from the Xbox One while setting up your user profile. You can also create an account online.

1. Select "Get a new email." This option appears when creating a new user profile on the Xbox One.

2. Create an outlook email address. To do this, enter the text you want to use as your local part (the part before the @ symbol). Then select the "enter" key on the screen and press "A," or just press the "Options" button (marked with three horizontal lines) on the controller.

3. Enter your first name and last name. On the first screen (picture below) that says, "Create your account," enter your first name and choose "enter." On the following page, type your last name.

4. Pick a password. Xbox requires that your Microsoft account password ***** at least eight characters, at least one of which must be an uppercase letter, a number or a symbol. On the page after that, the Xbox will ask you to to enter your date of birth.

5. Add a backup phone or email address. Microsoft requires you to enter either a backup phone number or an email address where you can be reached if you ever get locked out of your Microsoft account.

6. Accept the services agreement, and privacy and cookies statement. You'll have to click on the buttons labeled "Microsoft services agreement" and "Microsoft privacy and cookies statement" to actually read them. On this page, you'll also need to make sure to check or uncheck the options to receive promotional emails and to let Microsoft analyze your account information.

7. Accept the Xbox Terms of Use and privacy statement. As before, you'll have to click on the buttons labeled "Xbox Live terms of use" and "Xbox privacy statement" to actually see them. At this point, you'll also have to check or uncheck the options to receive information and offers from Xbox and its partner companies.

What Customers are Saying:

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
