When Microsoft first launched the Windows Store back in 2012, it imposed a limit on the number of devices a single Microsoft account could install Store apps on. Originally, this number was a measly five, but that was increased to 81 a year later before being decreased to ten with the launch of Windows 10. Now, it seems Microsoft has had yet another change of heart, as the device limit has increased to 2,000.

If you're wondering how many devices you have signed into the Windows Store, you can head to the Microsoft Account website to check. You will now see the limit has increased from 10 to 2,000 devices per account, which should mean most people no longer have to worry about the device limit, especially if you're someone who has more than ten devices signed into your account.

Microsoft is yet to make any official announcement about this change, so at this point, this increase may just be an error. You can check to see if your account has been increased to 2000 at this link, and should look like it does in the screenshot above. From this page, you can remove any devices you no longer have that may still be linked to the Windows Store too, which is handy.
