Microsoft’s Device Account page now displays more information about your Windows 10 device. Microsoft recently updated the features available on the Devices tab of your Microsoft Account page.

Microsoft Device Account’s new features

When you own more Windows 10 devices, it can be pretty hard to keep track on all of them and to permanently know the status of each device. This problem now has a solution, as Microsoft has just rolled out a revamp to the Microsoft Device Account page. The update is now displaying more info about your Windows 10 devices.

The page itself is not new at all, but on the other hand you’ll find various new telemetry features on the device account page which you can access by going to account.microsoft.com/devices.

Get more info on your devices

For instance, you now have the option of seeing the update status of a certain Windows 10 device, and you can also view the storage status of your main C: drive on a specific device.

You can see the individual status of other Windows Defender Settings including virus and threat protection, app and browser control, firewall status, and BitLocker status.

The device account page will now be able to list more specs regarding your device in a similar manner that “About my PC” on desktop does. It will also display the Windows 10 version, OS build, serial number, processor, graphics card, RAM, and warranty info.

The revamped page also shows information about Windows updates and it will show the status “pending”, if a specific device needs to be restarted for an update.

More info on Windows Phones

It’s also important that the updated device account page now displays more information about Windows Phones though with phones you’ll only get to see the storage space on the device, the Phone #, Edition, Version, IMEI #, and RAM.
