so I'm having a hard time signing in to my gmail (it has a microsoft account attached to it) because it claims my password is wrong but I have a piece of paper that has my password on it right here and occasionally it'll say I need to "Verify my identity" which in that case I give all correct answers and it still can't figure out I own that email.

    You can add an alias to your microsoft account then change that alias to primary.
