Windows 10: This change to my computer affect my Wife's computer.

    This change to my computer affect my Wife's computer.


    When I setup a screensaver slideshow on my Win 10 computer it also sets itself up on my wife's Win 10 machine. How do I stop this? Is this something to do with a network setting that I don't want or need?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Do you sign into the machines with the same Microsoft account, if so it sounds like it is syncing your settings
    This might help
