Does MS still have a 10-device limit per account for installing Store apps? I just bought a Beelink Mini-PC that I would like to add to my MS account. The mini pc would be device number 11.

I have always thought that was a poor rule from MS. I have 2 machines in the garage that I use for a laser and a miller, both were removed from my list when I upgraded

I was hoping that they had increased the number of devices per MS account. Years ago I read that MS was going to increase the number of devices. I guess they are too busy making new emoji's.

I don't understand the purpose of limiting the number of devices per account. I don't see any difference between someone having more than 10 devices on one account or someone having more than 10 devices spread over two or more accounts.

Does MS still have a 10-device limit per account for installing Store apps? I just bought a Beelink Mini-PC that I would like to add to my MS account. The mini pc would be device number 11.

Nice, another Beelink Mini-PC user. I've got an SEI8 model myself that is what I run Windows 11 on.
