Desktop Syncing Across Multiple Devices (MS Based)

Aug 2, 2015

Just wondering if its possible to make multiple devices desktops look the same. For example if you change your desktop on your PC it could be made to automatically change on your other devices.

Browser/Email :: How Does Syncing Favorites Work Across Devices

Nov 9, 2015

I have windows 10 preview 10565 installed on two computers. I have "Sync your content" on in Edge. Should my bookmarks get synced between the two computers? Do I need to do something else to get it work other than turning syncing on?

If it doesn't work, is there a file I can go to on one computer, copy it, and they move it to the other to get the bookmarks? Would really prefer it to sync though but at least this would be a start.

Messages Not Syncing Across Devices And Messaging App Only Gives Option To Send Via Skype

Dec 1, 2015

I'm a little confused as to whether we can use the Messaging app in W10 desktop to send SMS via our Windows Phones. Is this actually the case? Because if it is, my messages are not syncing across devices and my Messaging app only gives me the option to send messages via Skype, which is annoying since a few people I know don't have W10 mobile yet and/or have devices from competing companies.

Installation :: Multiple Devices Upgraded With Same MS Account

Aug 5, 2015

I have upgraded 3 devices from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 (Home)

DeviceDefault OSUpgraded toHP LaptopWindows 8.1 64 BitWindows 10 Home 64 BitHP Desktop PCWindows 8.1 64 BitWindows 10 Home 64 BitDell Venue 8 ProWindows 8.1 32 BitWindows 10 Home 32 Bit

All three devices are logged in with same MS account.

After the upgrade I just noticed that all 3 devices have same Product Key and almost similar Product ID


Product ID: 00123-10000-00000-XY123

Except the last 3 digits in Product ID ( underlined ) everything is exact same on all three devices.

Before upgrade, all devices were using the OEM Product Keys came with them and everything was different. Now it is all the same. I do understand that I am not supposed to get a new Product key for each device or installation, it is a free upgrade that MS will validate online on each installation using some sort of Hardware Hash/ Identity from my devices. But still...

If I now perform clean install on all of, hopefully it shouldn't cause any problem, or would it?MS is giving same Product Key, Product ID to all my devices because they are attached to same MS account, or is MS giving same Product Key/ ID to all who are upgrading from a specific type of Source Windows Version and Edition?Say same Product Key/ ID is only because of same MS account to all 3 devices, suppose I upgrade a fourth device, but before upgrade switch to Local Account, will MS still give me same Product Key/ ID?I install fresh Windows quite a lot of times, like to play around and mess around a lot, when I have time. Sometimes even change (experiment with) RAM, HDD, SSD, and even processor. My concern is that I might lose Windows 10 validity.

SMS / Text Messages Syncing With Desktop Messaging App?

Jan 22, 2015

Did we receive any word whether it would be possible for users to sync SMS messages across not only phones but computers as well? It would be very convenient for me if I could respond to someone who messaged me from my computer rather than my phone when I'm at home or doing work.

Drivers/Hardware :: Audio Devices In Device Manager But Not In Playback Devices

Oct 2, 2015

Laptop Samsung NP300V5A. Sound stops working about a month after Win 10 upgrade. No changes done at the time.Audio devices show up under Device Manager, but not under Playback/Recording Devices. Same for Realtek Sound Manager - it doesn't see the devices. I can install, delete and update drivers under Device manager but it doesn't make any difference. It is not a physical problem, tested on Linux live CD.

Solutions tried:
-Installing various versions of HD Realtek Drivers (including windows update version)
-Installing/Removing Realtek software.
-Enabling/Disabling devices under Device Manager
-Called spirits of ancestors. Seemed like it worked for a while, but ended up being a joke.
-Did system restore to various dates.
-Restarted in safe mode
-Restarted various services such as Windows Audio, Windows Audio Endpoint Builder, Plug'n'Pray, Power, etc.
-Checked system, application and driver even logs.
-Tried a couple of registry fixes. Angered spirits of ancestors. Turning gray..
-Reinstalled chipset drivers
-Rebooted about 30 times
-Sound Device Troubleshooting finds no issues
-Display Disabled Devices is enabled

Customization :: How To Separate Desktop Themes On Multiple Computers

Jan 4, 2016

I have two windows 10 computers on the same network in different rooms. One is in my bedroom, one is in the living room. My roommate's girlfriend has a 10 year old son that comes by sometimes. I like to have my pin up girls on the desktop in my room but I keep generic desktop themes in the computer in the living room since I let other people use that one. I had to reinstall Windows 10 on the computer in the living room, and for some reason, the themes keep syncing and I can't figure out how to keep them separate (the computer also share the same Windows ID, it did it on it's own). So if I have my pin up girl theme in my room, eventually it shows on the computer in the living room. If I use a generic theme in the living room, eventually it shows in the bedroom. How do I keep these desktop themes separate?

Networking :: Remote Desktop To Machine Fails Or Takes Multiple Tries

Nov 13, 2015

I've been noticing that RDP is a toss up on my Windows 10 machines. It hangs and I have to close the connection, then try again and get an error stating it's not available because it's busy, then try a third time after a few minutes and it works. I have disabled connecting to printers, clipboard, smartcard, etc. and still have the problem.

Cumulative Update For X64 Based Systems

Dec 23, 2015

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3116869). Keep getting "Failed to install on (date)". NO other updates will download, either. Everything seeps to be stuck. Get the message: "There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may work:" The update troubleshooter finds no problems. I have tried to reset the Update process per the instructions supplied by Microsoft. No results there, either. Long story short, I'm not able to get any updates.

Jul 30, 2015

After installing windows 10 all Internet based media is not working. BBC iplayer, Netflix both via app and browsers, YouTube takes notions, any live streaming is a pixilated green screen but again with just sound. As this is the main use of my Toshiba laptop the thing is darn useless now.

Nothings worked and not seeing similar threads so am I alone and if so how do I go about getting a working laptop again as I no longer have option to go back to 8.1.

Customization :: Change Start Menu Location Based On Number Of Monitors

Dec 17, 2015

I have two desktops (work and home) with more than one screen, on these computers, I would like my start menu on the far right side of the right screen.

However, on computers with only screen (my laptop), I would like my start menu along the bottom.

Is there any way to set up an IF statement that places the start menu in a location based on the number of screens or, worst case, stop that property from updating across computers?

Cortana Not Syncing With Phone?

Jul 29, 2015

So I was excited to get Windows 10 today and try out Cortana. I do have a Lumia 1020 and I do use Cortana frequently. I wanted to see how fast she could sync between PC and phone. I asked Cortana to remind me to buy milk in five minutes. After five minutes she did remind me, but only on PC. I checked my phone and there were no new reminders. Maybe I need to log out of PC???

App Licenses Not Syncing Properly

Apr 16, 2015

My app licenses aren't synced properly. I bought Tubecast via IAP which isn't being recognized as purchased on my Surface running Windows 10 preview 10049, and now after buying Halo Spartan Strike, shows up on my list of purchased (but not installed) apps, but when I go to install it, only gives me the option of buying it. I haven't read anything about others having this issue, and I only noticed it after updating to this build (TubeCast was unlocked in the last build).

I recently upgraded to windows 10. So using new Mail App. Got all my email accounts on there fine, inbox's syncing no problem. But the folders I had set up on my email account are all empty, says there is nothing to see, including the sent folder. So when I send an email, it doesn't go in to the sent folder on the app. I have to log on to my 1and1 email account and access sent items from there, along with content of all my other folders. Why its not syncing with the folders set up??

Customization :: Themes Not Syncing Backgrounds

Nov 25, 2015

I have a theme on my desktop PC which obtains its backgrounds from a folder in My Documents. There are about 300 in there. I have no issues with the theme using all the backgrounds available.

Until, that is, I switch on the sync theme option. Then the theme which magically appears on my laptop is the same, but only has about 10 backgrounds which the theme is accessing in a new folder called Desktopbackgrounds. In other words, they don't all sync across.

I go back to my desktop PC and it then has the same issue. Instead of using the folder in My Documents with all my backgrounds in, it is also only using the 10 or so stored in the roaming folder Desktopbackgrounds.

I'd like to sync my theme across my PC and laptop, but if it doesn't let more than 10 backgrounds sync, whats the point!

Customization :: Custom Sound Set Not Syncing

Oct 8, 2015

I like to use my own sound effects for Windows and keep them in My Documents. So I right click on the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner and select sounds. Then find and select my own wav files for each event I'd like to use.If works for a while, but then reverts back to default.

I have another PC, a laptop, and would like to use the same sound set on that too - except the laptop does not have the same files on it. I had hoped that the laptop sound theme would sync from the desktop, but clearly not! Could the laptop not having the relevant sound files be the cause of the desktop's sound theme reverting to default?
