    Could you explain a bit more you could just open settings and goto devices there you can add connected devices :tea:

    guess you need to have a GPS module installed prior to searching for your device

    Action center (icon down right) - click connect - show your devices and also "where is my device" ?

    I think that it is used something else too, like wireless displays (for example, Miracast, continuum by cp, etc.) ... not just bluetooth.

    'Find my device' is a feature included in Windows 10 to know where your mobile devices are or located on the map. You set it using your MSA.

    Have you ever seen that it is missing - can not find "Find my device" from settings ... have you ever tried devices through connect of action center (if you have any devices) ?

    Can you explain what you mean a bit? My idea of what the original poster is asking for is 'Find My Device' feature at the Settings and he even puts it in quotes.

    TH2 10586 (1511) is implemented for devices (find my device) other than phones (find my phone)

    It needs to be a portable device running TH2 or later.
