    Just deauthorised 3 computers 2 dead ones and my husbands, who lets me use it.
    Then read at the end, can only deauthorise when you have used 5!
    But itunes says I have 0 authorised great, now having spent ages trying to authorise his still cant get there, info say go to itunes store hover over the top and a menu will appear no it will not. This is the latest version of itunes downloaded today before I synced both ipads 2 and mini. Neither synced properly as not same info on both.
    Also ipad was next to me and computer not plugged in USB and itunes kept saying syncing.

    It's possible to authorize up to 5 computers to access your content. To deauthorize computers, it's not necessary that 5 are authorized.

    Here's how you authorize a computer:
    https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201251

    Hovering only works when you use iTunes in full screen mode. In any other case, you have to click.

    You're welcome.

    It looks like you couldn't finish your post. Is there still a problem, or were you able to authorize your computer?
