    How to see my activated devices in my Microsoft account?


    Hello.
    After a clean install of ver 1803, I had some troubble activating it. I found this solution:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ardware-change

    That worked. But now my Windows is activated on both my PC, I can't figure out how to see my activated devices in my Windows account. Is this only possible when an activation-error is present?

    When logging in to my account and select "devices" in the upper menu, I'm told that I don't have any Microsoft-devices, which is true. I don't have a Surface or any other Microsoft devise, but I do have 2 Windows 10 PC's. and I would like to be able to see them, to sort the computername, as one is Windows 10 HOME and the other is Windows 10 Pro.

    Ideas?

    All your devices running Windows should appear under Devices in your Microsoft account provided you login using a Microsoft account. I see my 3 PCs running Windows 10 and my Windows phone.

    Activated or not, they should show up, assuming you log in with that Microsoft Account. All my PC's and my XBOX show up.

    Okay, then tell me what I'm doing wrong. I have 2 PC with Windows 10, both are logged in with the same Microsoft account, but this is what I see when choosing "Devices" (sorry the pic is in Danish, but I'm sure you get the mening)

    Wish I had an answer but I don't? I have no idea what would cause that?

    Can you see all your devices from one PC, or is it only the one you are using taht shows up?

    When I had the troubble with activating, I could see all my devices in a list at the same time. That is the only time I have seen all my devices in one list. If you can see all devices, how do you reach this page? In a browser, or by the "settings/account" function?

    I see all the devices that I have ever logged on to with that Microsoft account on that page. I see the same devices listed if I log in to that page from my laptop or desktop PC. Probably on my XBOX to but I don't think I've ever gone to my devices page on that.

    Nobody has any ideas? How about Brink?

    I have written to Microsoft support, but has not got an answer (yet).

    What are you using for anti-virus etc, any third party firewall? Have you been playing around with disabling any services? All PC's have good reliable Internet access?
