    Old devices Microsoft account


    I deleted a device that was my old computer with win7 on it, it was associated with my game account for Modern Combat 5 Blackout that I have been playing for 4 yrs. Now I cannot use this account with my game only the one associated with Xbox. I had 1400 hrs on that account, only 69hrs on Xbox account which is for win10 on this newer computer. How do I get a deleted device back that I can no longer sign into?

    :)

    Hello Flemmingk, Old devices Microsoft account :)

    Could these other devices be from friends that you may have signed in to your Microsoft account on for something?

    Either way, you can remove these devices.

    Afterwards to be safe, I would recommend to change the password of your Microsoft account, and enable two-step verification if you haven't already.

    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.
