    2 laptops weirdly synced. Any help greatly appreciated.


    Hi everyone,

    I can't find this answer by searching, sorry.
    My wife's DELL and my HP (mine is version 2014 OS Build 19041.685) are bizzarely synced/ linked in some way, and I cannot stop it.
    When either of us adds or deletes a favourite, for example, it changes on the other computer.
    They are registered with Microsoft accounts on different emails, and sync is turned off on both computers.
    I'm completely at a loss as to what to try next. It doesn't help that I know nothing at all.

    Thanks in advance,
    C

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    This issue may happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly follow
    the below given steps:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin)
      to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.
    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.
    Method 2:

    If issue persist, Kindly follow the below given steps and check if it helps:

    Run these commands:

    • Press Windows key and type Powershell in search, right click on it and Open as administrator
      .
    • Type the following command in Powershell and hit enter:


    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Please post back with the results and the information asked, we will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    2 laptops weirdly synced. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Win10 laptop w/laptop display (no others) labeled 2, can't change to 1

    alphanumeric and Helmut, Thank you for your replies.

    1. The drivers were installed when Windows 10 was installed. There was nothing on the laptop prior to installing Windows 10.
    2. I don't have another display to try attaching as suggested.
    3. Not sure if it's always been like this or not. I just started looking at the configuration settings a week or so ago.
    4. To check hardware status, I've run a bunch of Lenovo tests and update checks. Nothing found.
    5. I did the Device Manager suggestion. 2 PnP monitors listed ... clicked "Show Hidden devices" ... found 2 more PnP monitors for a total of 4 ... uninstalled all 4 ... restarted ... same situation. Results: Device Manager now only lists 2 PnP monitors total (no hidden monitors) even though the only monitor is the laptop built-in monitor, but no change on the designation of laptop monitor being number "2" monitor.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions. Not sure why it is like this. Might be something like Win10 compatibility, old hardware, or similar.

    I've taken enough of your time on this. I can live with it as it is. Might decide to upgrade to a new and current laptop, or just proceed as is. Anyway, your responses are greatly appreciated!
