Microsoft Account Device page revamped, displays more info about your Windows 10 devices
When you own a lot of Windows 10 devices, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all and know the status of individual devices. This problem can now be solved, as Microsoft has just quietly rolled out a revamp to the Microsoft account devices page, now displaying more information about your Windows 10 devices (via Deskmodder.de)
While the page itself is not new, there are now several new telemetry features on the device account page (accessible by going to account.microsoft.com/devices.) For one, you can now see the update status of a specific Windows 10 device, and the storage status of your main C drive on a specific device. You also can now see the individual status of other Windows Defender Settings such as virus and threat protection, firewall status, app and browser control, and BitLocker status.
Interestingly, the device account page also now lists more specs about your device (similar to about my PC on desktop,) and the Windows 10 Edition, version, OS build, serial number, processor, graphics card, RAM, and warranty information. The updated page also lists information about Windows Updates, showing the user “pending” if a device needs to be restarted for an update.
It’s also worth noting that the updated device account page now lists more information about Windows Phones, though with phones you only can see the storage space on the device, the Phone #, Edition, Version, IMEI #, and RAM.
Do you find these new features on the Microsoft Account device page useful in managing your lineup of Windows 10 devices? How many Windows 10 devices do you own? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.Further reading: devices, Microsoft, Microsoft Account
