    64-bit Windows 10 Pro build 14955

    Update: September 21st 2016
    The feature below has been removed in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14931.


    Starting with Windows 10 Insider Preview build 14926, there's a new Windows Anywhere setting in Settings -> Accounts. This new setting is obviously not complete yet, so there should be more details about it in a future build.

    When you turn on or off Use Windows Anywhere it will also turn on or off Sync settings.

    This syncing of your Microsoft account can really make a mess of things when trying to do a fresh install of Windows 10. It seems to default to "ON" when booting from a disc or USB stick. I tried a new install onto a new NVME drive and it was a real mess as bits and pieces of programs and settings were forced onto my drive and mucked up a lot of things. To prevent any residual "syncing" to occur in a new install, simply do not log onto your Microsoft Account when performing the install. You can do that later and after you have turned off syncing.
