    Windows license status after unlink device


    So I want to give my laptop to my nephew. I have read this article but wondering about the Windows license. After I remove my device from my account and reset the device, can the new owner use it like it’s a brand new laptop? My nephew already have another Windows linked to his account, so it just like adding another device or there’s something else I and he should do during the process?

    :)

    Unlink combined contacts - People app

    Hi Ninaco,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.

    The People app is your address book. Combine contacts is a feature to link duplicates to a single contact to avoid confusion. To overcome the issue you’re facing, I suggest you to try the steps listed below:

    Method 1

    Unlink Contacts:

    • Open People app, click on the contact that is linked, and select
      See More on the right pane.
    • Click on Separate for the contact you want to unlink.

    Method 2

    Reset People app:

    If you’ve multiple contacts that are linked, resetting People app would unlink contacts and put everything in place.

    • Exit People app, if open.
    • Open Settings and click on Apps.
    • Locate People app on the right pane and choose
      Advanced Options.
    • Click on Reset.

    Once reset is complete, open People app to see if the contacts are still linked.

    For more information regarding People app, refer People app help

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
