    Find my device on Windows 10 desktop


    Find my device Is not available under settings, update and security on my desktop PC. Whereas it is for my laptop. Can only one be tracked or is it suppressed because it's a desktop? I'm not bothered, I'm hardly going to mis place my huge desktop but was just curious

    cheers,
    wayne

    Hello Wayne,

    Yeah, Find My Device currently only appears to be available for portable Windows 10 PCs such as laptops or tablets for now.

    I have a newly purchased Wiindows 10 Asus ux305 laptop and it does not have "find my device." Is there any way to install it?

    My computer updated tonight and I can see "find my device" now. However, when I try to log into my Microsoft account, it indicates that I have the wrong password (I am typing in the correct password!!) Very frustrating!
