Windows 10: Exporting my OS customizations to another build...

    Exporting my OS customizations to another build...

    I'm running several win10 machines. I've spent quite a bit of time and effort customizing the UI, taskbar, shortcuts, etc., on them. I'd like to take all my changes from one of my machines and apply those changes to all the rest. No, I haven't the foggiest idea about the myriad settings and whatnot which I've changed, I just like how that one machine looks and how the menus present themselves and how the settings work.

    When Win10 installs, it has a default user configuration. I have changed it. Is that "delta" available somewhere?

    Or, is there a configuration file somewhere which can be imported/exported, onto different machines (different user names, logins, files, folders, programs, etc.)?

    A good deal of your W10 settings can be synced between devices but only if you use a Microsoft account to log in. To read up on this topic see the following tutorial:
