    New Account set up

    Hello Guys,

    This is my main PC where everything is set up as I want it (apart from a Start Menu App issue but that's another story), I have just added my account (that is on this PC) to my wife's laptop, I've entered my Microsoft log in and password.

    I was on the understanding that all the Apps and settings from my main PC would migrate to the laptop, this has not happened which seems pretty useless to me.

    My theme and favourites have migrated over but not the apps, does any one know if this should work or Is it another Windows 10 failing?

    It is not another Windows 10 failing. Windows 10 will not copy programs from one computer to another because without additional licenses that would be piracy. Microsoft cannot make themselves responsible for knowing what programs you are licensed to copy and what you aren't.

    It was the apps and windows settings I was concerned about
