    The Police are your best option for a stolen laptop.

    Due to privacy restrictions we have no access to your private details to be able to assist you here.

    Sign in to your Microsoft account

    Find My Phone or Device

    Lost your phone or think someone stole it? Left your device somewhere? See your phone or device on a map, or ring, lock and erase your phone.


    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Find and lock a lost Windows device


    If your desktop, laptop, tablet, or Surface is lost or stolen, use Find my device to locate and lock it remotely.

    To find the lost device, it must be running Windows 10 and be signed in to your Microsoft account. You can also use Find my phone to find, locate, lock, and even erase your Windows Phone.

    Notes

    • You must be signed in to the lost device with a Microsoft account for which you're the administrator. If you're using a work or school account, Find my device won't work.
    • To send its location, your device must be connected to the Internet, have enough battery power, and use GPS.

    Cheers.

    stolen laptop

    Hello,

    Microsoft does not install tracking software on the device. The way tracking programs work - they "phone home", they send a signal out to the Internet and tell someone (like the tracking program provider) where they are. - Shawn 'Cmdr' Keene, MVP
