    Trying to understand synching


    I did a fresh Window install for "friend" - The moment I signed into Windows with his Microsoft account, the desktop populated but he claims that it did not look like his old desktop from his old PC before the HD crashed and that it look more like his wife's PC. I looked at his wife's PC and noticed it was really his user account and also his Microsoft 365 account (OneDrive enabled) - So is it likely that the Wife's PC pushed its desktops settings to the new install? I am trying to understand which sync settings are the controlling factor (Windows, Edge, Microsoft 365 w/Onedrive enabled). I am guessing that the wife's PC should be using her own 365 account , not his, maybe cause conflicting OneDrive synching issues between the 2 PCs? Any words of wisdom that may clarify this situation would be appreciated

    :)
