I have now seven Windows 8/Windows RT devices listed in my Windows account (used to login to these devices).

Since some of them have now been returned to the manufacturers, I want to remove these devices from my account but can't find how to do it.

If I go to http://devices.live.com I am greeted with sa blurb about Windows Live Mesh (completely out of context).

Also, is there any way to remotely reset these tablets/laptops when a Windows account is used (all devices I sent back have been reset, but I am curious nonetheless).

as mentioned on twitter

it looks like you're talking about PCs registered against the Windows Store, you can remove these in the Store app from the Settings charm

There doesn't seem to be a way to list the devices you have 'trusted', all i can see is a learn more option or remove them all.

Thanks to Nathan and the Microsoft folks on Twitter.

Opening the store and going to settings allows you to remove devices linked to the store so they won't show anymore when looking at My Apps filters.

Remote reset is not yet available.
