    Find "My Apps" in the Windows 10 Store

    I am using a Microsoft account to log in.

    • User settings and apps ARE synced in Windows 8.1
    • Only User settings are synced in Windows 10.

    This is why I have asked the question originally.

    Have a look at this link you will see what I am talking about:

    For a new user account, there's no start menu and no action center

    When I create a new user account and sign in to it:

    • Nothing happens when I left-click or right-click the Start button--no menu at all.
    • When I try to open the Action Center, nothing happens; it won't open.

    So, the new user account is unusable.

    This happens when logging in to any new user account I create, not just a particular one.

    Could someone please help?

    Thank you.

    No Start Menu and App Sync for Windows 10

    Thanks for the info *Smile

    I was just thinking today how I could prevent the start menu syncing between my tablet and laptop as they will be used differently.
    Now I know that they won't sync anyway

    Oh good Lord, that's going to be a potential problem for me.... :| That's how I set up new installs of 8.1 on PCs, there's a customized experience I set up to make it nicer to use and showcase what 8.1 was all about. Siiiiiigggghhhh....

    Sysprep better not suck on 10. It took me literally three months to figure out how to get File Explorer tiles and other Desktop tiles to stay pinned to Start after a DISM deployment. The solution was a dummy Microsoft Account to sign into, sync the Start Screen and apps, and update all the apps as well.

    I think the option should be for us to decide, especially where apps are concerned.

    TERRIBLE!

    When I saw this on some blogs this morning I immediately went to the feedback app and typed start sync.

    Upvoted all the requests for the start sync because it is absolutely ridiculous that they would remove a key feature that helps makethings universal. If people are wanting it different on other machines, give the option to turn it off not remove something that was working perfectly fine on 8.1. That's why there's an on/off setting. Why have a sync menu if there is nothing to sync. Totally dumb move if true.

    No Start Menu and App Sync for Windows 10

    I Know even more people here will be disappointed/angry about this decision. This is why I tell people to always make sure they allow OS/software to send the meta data to the developer. If you checked "No" in CEIP settings in Windows(previous versions) it's your fault something you like is gone. I always allow them access to my meta data:

    I've been participating from the beginning. So, totally dumb. Had this setting enabled on both my machines when they were on 8.1.

    Most people turn it off though, the few, like us, that leave it turned on are the only feedback they get, sadly. It's especially the power users and geeks that turn it off, the ones who actually use what gets lost in the end(a generalizing statement, I know).

    I have always had the experience program turned on with my devices and with win 8 happily had it syncing all my start screens between them

    with the changes in 10, I will be wanting different start screens and do not want them to sync, tablet mode on tablet and standard start menu on laptop

    I do agree an option on this would be best, not just remove the feature

    I turn off syncing Start Screen Tile layouts. If I don't they constantly get shuffled when I go from my laptop to my desktop. Two different sized screens. Syncing installed Apps though I find useful. Leaving the option selectable but the default to off might have been a better option though, IMHO Oh well.
