    Watch my sad story here.

    I have only two devices linked to my MS account. The second desktop PC has Device sync settings disabled for now.

    Anyway, my acute spidey senses tells me that this behavior is wrong. How do I go about getting Device sync settings working?

    Windows 10 Pro, version 1709, build16299.125
