    connecting pc as a device on another microsoft account


    I downloaded Minecraft java before 2018 and thus got the game minecraft for windows for free. Now the issue is, my pc is running on a different microsoft acount my university account which lets us have windows 10 for free. I was wondering if there is any way I can still install minecraft for windows 10 on my pc? I am running into issues when trying to connect my pc as a device on my minecraft microsoft acount.


    hope someone can help.

    thank you

    :)

    Unknown devices on my Microsoft account


    Thanks Brink
    I get different reactions every time I try to delete a device, but the result is that I cannot remove the devices.
    I'll go back to local accounts and delete the Microsoft account.
    I changed to Microsoft account because I wanted to use the Continue on PC feature. This feature doesn't work so I think that I'll just forget about it.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Adding PC to Microsoft account list of devices

    Hello,

    I go into Microsoft account and look under list of devices and it tells me that there are no devices associated with the Microsoft Account. Really? That is strange because the PC I am using is signed in on the Microsoft account. Because the device is not
    listed, it is causing problems with some apps and stuff.

    From support around adding devices, it would seem you can only add win 10 devices? So is this why my PC is invisible - because it is running 8.1?

    By the way, I have tried waiting for 30 days and it does not automatically appear. I have also signed in with a local and then redone with a Microsoft account and that does nothing either.

    Any suggestions please?

    regards,

    Too many devices in Microsoft Account


    Hello JJ, connecting pc as a device on another microsoft account :)

    Yep, that would be the reason why the PC is listed more than once as a device for your Microsoft account.

    Each different computer name will be listed as a separate device.

    The tutorial below can help show you how to remove the devices you want.
