    The desktop screen on laptop changes the desktop for...desktop.

    I'm not sure if this should go under the topic of General Help or Customization. Since it is about personalizing I opted to post it here.

    I've got a Lenovo Desktop that was upgraded from 8.1 to 10 just after the release. I have a Toshiba Laptop which I upgraded from 7 to 10 about a month ago. Occasionally, the desktop screen for the desktop would be the default desktop image for the Toshiba laptop with "Toshiba" in the lower right corner.

    Last night I performed a clean install of 10 on my Laptop. I went to bed and let the laptop work the updates as I was sleeping. When I woke up the Lenovo, again, the desktop showed the Toshiba default image rather than the one I had changed it to previously.

    I had researched the issue but only after making this post is when I realized that all accounts under the same Microsoft ID will synch, including the desktop personalization. Not exactly a feature that I like. I'd like to turn that feature off.

    Thank you Kari. I appreciate the input. I'll go check it out now. For some reason I like a different desktop between my computers but had almost come to grips that they would be synched forever.....

    It's really simple, just disable the desktop theme sync.
