Windows 7: Edit/remove devices from

Windows 8 Pro (32-bit)
Edit/remove devices from

My school reimaged their computers so I had to reinstall Skydrive.

Problem is, I now have two entries for the school computer, with the second one being (computer name)-1.

How do I remove the old device, and change the name of the current device?

I managed to remove the old copies of the computers, but they still have -1 at the end of the name. How do I fix that?

I hope they add the personalization capabilities that Mesh had (Name and device icon), found at

And while I'm at it, how do I rename Trusted PCs on my Microsoft account?

Log into SkyDrive, click any pc name then follow instruction option near top left. Then reinstall on the pc/s you want using the last location used or you will get double folders.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

This worked for me. I got a prompt on the disconnected computer (name-1) that it had been unlinked. On the SkyDrive website, I deleted name and name-1. Then, I logged back in on the computer, and it showed up in the devices list as name. "Problem" solved!
