    Desktop wallpaper migrated to another PC

    I recently set up a new tower PC for our church office with 2 users, 1 general use, the other for restricted use. General user wallpaper was a Windows 10 default. For the restricted user I created a specific wallpaper so it would be obvious when in that user; the restricted user isn't used that much.

    A week or so later I noticed that the laptop used for Zooming the church services had acquired the restricted user wallpaper. To the best of my knowledge that wallpaper file has never been near the laptop, it's not on a USB stick. Both PCs are on the internet via the church network. I really can't imagine how the wallpaper file got there, I'll have a look in the laptop's registry tomorrow and see what the filename is. It's not a serious issue, the 2 PCs can't access each other AFAIK.

    Any thoughts on how this could have happened?

    The PC`s may be synced. If so all you have to do is turn off Sync.

    My W11 install Synced with my other PC`s until I turned it off.

    Make sure both PC`s are using a Local account.
