    How to Remove Windows 10 Devices from your Store Account


    The Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 offers various apps, games, music, movies & TV, and books that users can browse through, purchase, or get for free to download and install for their Microsoft account in Windows 10 PCs and devices.

    To be able to install apps from the Store, you must be signed in to the Store with a Microsoft account. When signed in to the Store with a Microsoft account, you will be able to install any apps already owned by that Microsoft.

    You can remove a device if you're trying to install an app or a game from the Store on a Windows 10 device and you've reached your device limit. You can install apps or games on up to 10 devices.

    If you have the Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, or Education edition installed, you will no longer need to be signed in to the Store with a Microsoft account to install an app from the Store.

    There are some restrictions though:
    1. The Windows 10 Home edition still requires signing in to the Store with a Microsoft account before any apps or games can be downloaded.
    2. Only free apps or games can be installed without a Microsoft account. This is likely done to avoid situations where pay for apps or games would not be available to reinstall (if needed) without having to pay for them again.
    3. You will need to download all apps again whenever you reinstall Windows 10.
    4. Some applications may still require a Microsoft account or another account to work properly or at all.
    Windows Store device limit

    Depending on the content or service, Microsoft has different licensing rules, and there are four separate lists you need to control:
    • Apps and games: On apps and games you download for free or purchase from the Store, you're limited to 10 devices, which is a significantly smaller number than the 81 device limit on Windows 8.1.
    • Music: The rules are even more restricted with music. If you have a Groove Music Pass (Xbox Music Pass), then you're limited to only four devices. However, music purchased from the Store can be authorized on up to five personal devices.
    • Movies & TV: Similar to the music rules, for TV shows and movies you acquire from the Store you're limited to four devices for video playback.
    • Books: This is a new list, and the limits won't be clear until the feature become available with the Windows 10 Creators Update.
    This tutorial will show you how to remove Windows 10 devices from being associated with your Store account for getting apps and games.

    *Warning Once you remove a device, apps you've installed from the Windows Store for your Store account won't work on the device.



    Here's How:

    1. Go to the Apps and games | Manage your download devices page online for your Microsoft account, and sign in if you are not already.

    2. Click/tap on the Remove link for the device you want to remove from your Store account. (see screenshot below)

    3. Check the I'm ready to remove this device box, and click/tap on Remove. (see screenshot below)

    4. Click/tap on Close. The device isn't linked to your store account anymore. (see screenshot below)

    That's it,

    Remove account


    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

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”

    Hello Zanardi,

    Thank you for the update on the issue.

    I would suggest you to follow below mentioned steps and check if that helps:

    Remove Trusted Devices for your Microsoft Account in More security settings.

    1. Switch back to local account and remove all trusted devices (in More security settings).

    2. check if you are offline from the Windows store app

    3. return to device list (Microsoft account site) and check if the problem is solved.

    4. switch your local account into a Microsoft account and trust this pc using phone, sms or email.

    5. Use Windows Store to download a free game (just to test) and return one more time to device list and check if the problem is solved.

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?
