Windows 10: Microsoft account - Devices not in sync with actual devices

    Microsoft account - Devices not in sync with actual devices

    When going into my Microsoft account, then under 'Devices', there are 4 devices linked.
    The number of devices is correct, but that's it.
    All other data is incorrect, or outdated.

    I have 2 'real' PC's and 2 VM's using 1 single retail Windows 10 Pro and 3 upgrades from 7/8->10
    However, 'devices' show 1 'real' PC (nót the one with the retail W10 version, but the one running on an upgrade) and 3 VM's.

    I assume it isn't but if at all possible..., how do I get that in sync with what I am actually using.

    I am pretty sure that you can simply remove the devices from your account and then the next time you use your Microsoft login on those devices they will re-register with your account.
