  1. Phantom devices under Family } Apps & Game Limits


    Under my Family Safety tab of Microsoft account, if I go to Apps & Game Limits subtab it shows a list of devices these limits will apply to. My child should have access to 4 devices and they are on there listed correctly. However, there are two additional device icons for a total of 6 devices listed here with no names. One is in red. When I click on exclamation mark on that red device icon, nothing.Does anyone know how I can remove these two other phantom blank labeled device or device icons off this Apps & Game Limits device list or at the very least find out why they are there? Note: My Devices list is fine. These two ghost devices are ONLY appearing in the Apps & Game limits page. Also, I did unlink some old devices out of the Microsoft Store as well and now those device links are listed correctly in the store accounts. Appreciate any help.

    :)
