    Multiple PC's, same Microsoft account, always same BG color

    I have a few different PC's and virtual machines all running windows 10 and all using the same Microsoft account login. I like to keep the desktop background colors different so I can easily tell which PC I'm remote controlling. The problem is, the Microsoft account somehow knows what color I set last time and resets them all when I reboot.

    How can I tell them to sync my MS account data EXCEPT the desktop background color? I would like them all to keep different background colors.

    Hi. Welcome to TenForums @SkydiverRedMan

    Have you tried disabling of "Themes" in sync options.

    Wow, thank you!
    I knew there must be some place to change those settings. I just turned off the sync for "Theme" on all of the PC's. I'll let you know if any of them still change but I'm 99.9% sure that was the solution.

    Thanks again @Caledon Ken!
