    Which Windows settings are synced to the Microsoft Online account?


    Hello,


    I would like to get a list as detailed as possible.

    Some concrete questions I have:

    1. Is the list of installed apps being synced? If so do default scam apps I uninstalled on my machine also get uninstalled the next time I install that machine or another using my account?
    2. What about app specific permissions like giving access to the microphone or location and such?
    3. How about having Chrome as the default browser?
    4. Task bar?
    5. Start menu?
    6. Windows explorer settings? Hidden file extensions and such
    7. How about registry?

    Despite some answers an official list would be great.

    :)

  2. Microsoft Account not syncing WP8.1

    Hi Michael,

    We suggest that you manually sync your Microsoft account by following these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Tap email + accounts.
    • Tap and hold your Microsoft account.
    • Tap sync.

    Check also if you have the correct date and time set on your phone.

    Let us know the results.

    Regards.

    Not sure what else to suggest but since you mentioned it, try variations of the sync settings on your W8.1 phone. It is just possible that this is causing some confusion with your Microsoft account and the W10 settings.

    Turn On or Off Sync Settings for Microsoft Account in Windows 10


    Looking at the picture 4 of the step 4 of this link http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadF...in-windows-10/ , I noticed that the window for data synchronization, which lets choose which data to sync, is never displayed when I step from a local to Microsoft account.

    Why this window does not appear?

    Thanks

    Bye
