    win10 settings with recovery installation

    I want to know something. Does win10 save PC settings (control panel and system panel) with Microsoft account? I am asking this as i have come across some windows problems and i am going to run recovery. Obviously it will bring the system to factory settings and i had set the settings to my own liking within control panel and system panel. I wanted to know if i run recovery and then login with Microsoft account which was already login, will the settings change as i set them or not?

    Hi, if this is the procedure you mean, it tells you what happens:
    Recover Windows 10 from a Recovery Drive - Windows 10 Forums

    (I don't know if you're aware of disk imaging, strongly recommended here. Using this can help avoid time consuming clean installs and recovery etc and reinstalling all programs.... If you routinely create and update your images (compressed copied of your disks/partitions) you can easily restore them to quickly get your PC back to a previously working state when you have problems- even a failed drive. Also a full backup, and can help you move to a new PC.

    E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for the images).
