  1. 2 instances of computer showing up on iCloud for windows, one running windows 6.2


    On icloud for windows in signed in devices I see 2 instances of my computer(both same id code). One is the right one running windows 10 but the other is running windows 6.2 or something really old like that. This is a fairly new computer so its never had a windows version that old. I am not very tech savvy so my first thought is “hacker!” I am worried and need information. Also when I sign into icloud it often asks me to sign in twice. What is going on?!

    Windows and Icloud Mail etc: Failing to initialise

    Hi
    TomParkinson2
    ,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below questions:

    1. Are you aware of making any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
    2. Do you receive any error message when the spinner stops?

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:

    Method 1: Uninstall iCloud application.


    I would suggest you to Sign out from the iCloud account from the app, then uninstall the application.

    1. Press Windows
      and R key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type appwiz.cpl and hit enter.
    3. Select the iCloud application and click on Uninstall.

    Method 2: Reinstall iCloud application.


    Step 1:

    I would suggest you toDownload
    the latest version of iCloud

    from the apple website. Follow the Onscreen instructions and install the application. For more information, check the article on
    Set up and use iCloud for Windows.


    Step 2:

    Once the installation is completed, tap on the Windows key on your keyboard, search for ICloud app. Right click on the app and click on
    Pin to taskbar.

    If you are using Surface PC, I would suggest you to follow steps mentioned in the Microsoft article about
    Using Surface with iPhone, iCloud,
    and iTunes.


    Hope it helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking ‘Yes’ or ‘No’.

    Is anyone running 2 instances of skype on a windows 10 mobile phone. I currently have a Lumia 830 running Windows 10 mobile and was wondering if anyone had figured out how to add a second Skype address to the phone?
