    Desktop syncing across multiple devices (MS based)


    Hi all
    Just wondering if its possible to make multiple devices desktops look the same. For example if you change your desktop on your PC it could be made to automatically change on your other devices.

    Regards Josh

    Sync apps on across multiple devices

    I recently started using the Windows 10 app for calendar, mail and people. I use multiple devices (2 laptops and a tablet). Is there a way to sync the changes I do on one device to another. For example: I added an account on one device, do I have to
    do it for all three. I made some changes to the calendar do I have to make those changes on all devices for that to show up. I made some event show as free instead of tentative, but when I go to another device it still shows as tentative.

  3. Sync apps on across multiple devices

    Hi Dunn,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing while syncing Windows Mail and Calendar apps on Windows 10. I will certainly help you.

    When sync is turned on, Windows keeps track of the settings you care about and sets them for you on all your Windows 10 devices. For syncing to work, you need to sign in to Windows 10 with your Microsoft account (or link your Microsoft account to your work
    or school account) on any device you want to keep in sync. Here's how:

    1. Open the Start Menu and select Settings.

    2. Click on Accounts category in the expanded Settings Window.

    3. On the right fringe, select Sync your Settings and switch the toggle to
    ON.

  4. Desktop syncing across multiple devices (MS based)

    certain things will sync between devices, start screen used to be one that did in 8, start menu syncing was removed from 10 and I don't think desktop icons have ever synced

    colours/settings etc should still sync, my settings still sync between 10 and 8.1
