  1. Microsoft account on deleted device keeps coming back


    One of my old office laptop has my microsoft account on it and I forgot to log my account out on that laptop. I thought by removing that device in account.microsoft.com/devices is enough to remove my microsoft account on it forever, but that's not the case...Somehow my own laptop's wallpaper change by itself and some weird documents on my onedrive pop up. I figure that because someone using my old office laptop and using it with my account still being use. And after I check again in account.microsoft.com/devices, that laptop still listed even though I already removed it I removed it twice alr

    Microsoft account on deleted device keeps coming back

    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.
