  1. Backgrounds not syncing

    Hi Everyone,

    Just got a new HP Envy 360. Setting up Windows, and everything synced up well. Unfortunately while doing some setup bits, the background all of a sudden went back to a standard Windows picture as the background. Checked my syncing settings, and they're all switched on. Also rebooted and that didn't help. Does anyone know what could be going on? I'm sure I'll run into other issues if I can't get it synced.

  2. Background / theme not syncing (Windows 10 1803)

    Hi wjhulzebosch,

    For me to provide you with relevant troubleshooting steps to address this problem, I would like to verify the following information:

    • Is this the first time you're trying to sync settings in all 5 devices? If not, was syncing working before?
    • Have you logged in your Microsoft account in all 5 devices?

    I know that you've already enabled the Sync your settings option in Microsoft Edge, however, I also suggest that you enable the Internet Explorer settings as well, as they use the same sync settings.

    If the issue persists, please restart the SettingsSyncHost.exe process and see if your computer is already synced. Follow these steps:

    1. Right-click on your taskbar and click Task Manager.
    2. Under Processes, select the Host Process for Settings Synchronization, then click
      End task.
    3. Restart your computer and let the process restart.

    Syncing with other devices may take time. I suggest that you give it about 24hrs.

    Should the issue persists, please update this thread so I can further assist you.

  3. Background applications

    Hi Robert,

    We understand that you don't want some apps to run on the background of your computer. What we suggest is to
    control which apps are allowed to run in the background. To see which apps have permission, just follow the below steps:

    • Open the Start menu or Start screen and select “Settings.”
    • Click or tap the “Privacy” icon in the Settings.
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select “Background apps.”
    • You’ll see a list of apps that have permission to run in the background with an “On/Off” toggle.
    Just bear in mind that, apps normally run in the background to update their live tiles, download new data, and receive notifications. If you want an app to continue performing these functions, you should allow it to continue running in
    the background.

    Feel free to update us with the results.
