    How do you sync themes between computers? Sometimes it seems to happen automatically, and sometimes it doesn't.

    Synced Theme

    Try this:

    1. Make sure you have all Integration Services for your Win10 VM turned on.
    2. Turn off theme syncing in the VM.
    3. On the host, save the theme for sharing.
    4. Drag & drop the theme to your VM desktop and click & install it.
    5. Now see if there are any differences.
    6. If there are still, it has to do with the virtual hardware.

  3. 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:

    • Right-click on your taskbar and click Task Manager.
    • Under Processes, select the Host Process for Settings Synchronization, then click
      End task.
    • 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.

  4. Syncing Themes Between Computers

    Win-10 themes keep changing


    Thank you for providing the information.

    • Did you try the steps suggested by Suvarna Govinda above, what was the result?
    As I understand the issue, Themes in Windows doesn't have the options to change on its own. Only the Wallpapers in the themes can change as selected ( Picture, Solid color and Slide Show ).

    I would suggest you to make us understand that if the Wallpapers are changing in Theme which you have selected.

    Below are the steps you can check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + I keys and select Personalization.
    • Select Theme and select the Default theme.
    • Select the Desktop Background below and select the Picture
      and save it and check.
    Please post us back if the issue resolves. We are glad to help you.
