I recently purchased a new SSD and installed Windows 8.1 on it. So now when I start my PC or IE, I see three Windows installs in it as shown. Notice 3 entries for my 3 PCs, I name all installs as "RED" so now there are 3 "RED"s. However, they are all 1 PC only but 3 installs.

How do I remove old or barren Windows installs from my Microsoft account?

https://skydrive.liv...s/DeviceBackups is where you can delete backup data, or
https://skydrive.liv...ettingsprivacy/ to delete synced settings. (The second address is not in any of the Skydrive menus.)
