    Desktop Background in Win 10 same as Win 8.1pro


    I have a triple boot system: Win 7 HP 64bit, Win 8.1Pro, and Win 10 TP 6629. All updates are current. Each OS is on a separate SSD. Win 7 installed first, Win 8.1 second and Win 10 TP last. I believe the System Reserved partition in Win 10 TP controls the boot settings. I set default using Easy BCDEdit.

    The situation is the desktop background is the same in both Win 8.1 and Win 10 TP. If I change one OS to another background, usually a slide show, the other OS changes to the same background. I would like to have Win 10TP different that Win 8.1. Is this possible?

    I think you can by going to systems in the 8.1 install and use the onedrive or skydrive options to stop syncing with the background.

    Glad you worked it out. I have 4 desktops running and still trying to sync them the way I want. Today I have my windows 7 theme on my TP desktop and wondering how that happened? Always a work in progress. Good day to you Charlie
