This tutorial will show you how to remove linked Windows 10 or Windows 11 PCs and Xbox consoles devices from your Microsoft account.

When you sign in to a device with your Microsoft account, that device will get added and linked to your Microsoft account.

When you add a device to your Microsoft account, you can access online features for your device from your Microsoft account devices page at Microsoft.

If you no longer use a device or sign in to the device with your Microsoft account, you can remove the device from your Microsoft account devices list to unlink it.
