    Remove Device from MS account


    I'd like to remove the 2 devices shown below from my MS account. According to Brink's tutorial, click on More Actions
    and get the Remove PC option. In my account the More Actions isn't "clickable". Any other options?

    ALSO - how do I delete the device from My Computers?

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    Odd change in MS account list of devices


    I was just checking my list of devices in my MS account, and I noticed two od things.

    1) My Hyper-V virtual machines are just listed generically as "virtual machines" whereas they always used to be listed as "Hyper-V virtual machines". I liked it that way so I could tell Hyper-V machines separately from VMWARE VMS.

    2) One of my VMs is now still listed in my MS account, even though I changed it to a local account. Previously device was always removed if you changed from MSA to local account. This is a good move assuming it is a change, not a glitch as this means the digital licence link will be retained if you changed to a local account for any reason.
