    unsync browsers in two computers


    Hello.


    I own a laptop on which I used the same microsoft account as the one I used to set up my parents PC.

    Both use windows 10 as much as I remember.

    I noticed that when I visit them and use the wifi somethings may or may not change in one of them.

    sometimes the background of one will change to match the other and always ower chrome shortcuts will be the same.


    how do I stop this?

    :)

  2. Unsyncing two computers

    I had already done what you suggested before I received your email. It didn't work. Also, I need help with the program issue. I had purchased the Microsoft Office Home & Student 2016. I need to find out how to transfer it from my previous computer to my
    current one. I had license for one program, so I would like to keep it. My grandson has no need for my version on his computer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Deborah Lawson

  3. Unsynced OneDrive Folders

    Folders I've chosen not to sync to my computer from One Drive will not appear in File Explorer. Combined with the disappearance of the OneDrive App, the only way to access unsynced OneDrive folders is by opening a browser. Am I doing something wrong?
