Using your Microsoft account to install apps on multiple PCs

You can use your Microsoft account to sign in to the Windows Store and install your apps on different PCs.

To install your apps on another PC

  1. Sign in to the PC you want to install your apps on using your Microsoft account.

  2. On the Start screen, tap or click Store to open the Windows Store.

  3. Tap or click Account, then tap or click My apps.

  4. Swipe down on or right-click the apps you want to install, then tap or click Install.

If you no longer use a PC that you've installed apps on, you can remove it from your account. You'll also need to remove a PC from your account if you've already used your account to install apps on the maximum number of PCs allowed.

To remove a PC from your account

  1. On the Start screen, tap or click Store to open the Windows Store.

  2. Tap or click Account, then tap or click My account.

  3. Under Your PCs, then tap or click Remove next to the PC you want to remove from your account.

Notes

  • You can remove a PC from your account when you're signed in to the Store on any PC.

  • After you've removed a PC from your account, you won't be able to use the apps that were installed from the Store on that PC.

  • If you can't see Account, your PC doesn't have the latest update for the Store yet. Instead, swipe down from the top edge of the screen (or if you're using a mouse, right-click), then tap or click Your apps or Your account.
