Find My Surface Book


Mr. Thurrott’s Win 10 Field Guide discusses “Find My Device” in Settings/Update & security. There’s even a screenshot. But I checked my Surface Book, and it’s gone! So I looked in my MS account, and my phones have “find my phone,” but my laptops have squat.

Win 10 wants to know the “location” of my Surface Book, but Maps only shows my “default location,” not my actual location. I’m a little surprised. Should I have bought a premium laptop and not settled for a Surface Book? My phone has a cellular connection, but so does my Surface Book (I have metered Internet). Certainly, I would’ve thought if they can find my phone they can find my connected laptop.

Is it just me?
