    how to delete a phone FOREVER in Microsoft's device list?


    I have got a new phone, and I have tried linked it to Windows as I did with my old phone. Without luck.
    But first things first. I log in to my Microsoft account, and look at "My devices". In there is my new phone and my old phone (Samsung and Huawei so no change for mistake). I then click on the old phone, click on show details, and then select Unlink this phone from the menu. Then the phone is gone ... for a time. Because next time I start my other PC, the old phone is back again!
    I have tried to boot both PC's (laptop and a gamer-rig) at the same time, both to windows account, removed the old phone in one, updated the page on both PC's, and the old phone is gone.
    Until next boot, then it is back again!!

    How do I delete the old phone FOR EVER, as it will never be used again??

    :)

    GPU-Z device list enumeration, device order?

    Specifically, how are the the GPUs listed in the drop down sorted, or determined? Vendor and PCI ID? OS hardware device list? Other?

    Sorry if this was answered somewhere already. Searching for "GPU LIST ORDER" and like terms were not helpful.

    Thanks.

    I think I'll put a list of people's favourite apps in the OP, starting with my own until I get some suggestions, but you can take a look at the Windows Phone app store at the top apps to see what's popular Windows Phone-Apps – Microsoft Store

    You are both now added, welcome! *Toast :toast:

    Laptop not listed in Devices in Microsoft Account

    Hi. When I log into my Microsoft account and check under Devices, I only see 3 out of 4 devices that I use with the account. Listed are two nokia windows phones running win 8.1 and 1 hp stream 11 laptop running windows 10.

    My main hp-15 laptop running windows 10 is not listed.

    I've tried the steps here:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/what-is-trusted-device

    to make it a trusted device but it doesn't make my hp-15 laptop listed.

    Thanks
