  1. Computer will not sync with Microsoft account?


    So, something a bit odd happened today: I tried signing in as usual, but a message (I didn't really get to read it fully) that went something like "unable to sign in to your Microsoft account" popped up, and all my stuff was gone. Background reset, default browser reset, etc. and I can't access any of my files. Luckily, they're still on the drive, but I can't access them because my computer isn't synced up with my Microsoft account or something.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I can go into more detail if need be.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Account not syncing WP8.1

    Hi Michael,

    We suggest that you manually sync your Microsoft account by following these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Tap email + accounts.
    • Tap and hold your Microsoft account.
    • Tap sync.

    Check also if you have the correct date and time set on your phone.

    Let us know the results.

    Regards.

    Not sure what else to suggest but since you mentioned it, try variations of the sync settings on your W8.1 phone. It is just possible that this is causing some confusion with your Microsoft account and the W10 settings.

    Microsoft Account and Syncing


    Hi Everyone

    I have just discovered the sync settings in Windows 10 and found out about how I can sync my settings and themes (which I am particularly interested in) I had the settings enabled with my computer and surface also with my existing Microsoft account signed in but the themes haven't seemed to sync.

    I have read that this can sometimes be fixed by signing in and out but would I have to do this in a specific order? Is there a troubleshooting method I could try? I have also signed into another Microsoft account one before but I doubt it affects this.

    Would this be because I have to have the exact same theme installed on both computers?

    I would also like to try first the options that don't involve resetting my PC etc since I have apps/games that I have configured with my own settings and I don't want to reconfigure them all again.

    Finally I also have OneDrive signed into both PC's, so I guess what I am really looking for is just a troubleshooting list to go through to see if I can sync themes.
