    My Microsoft Account won't sync anything, except favorites in Edge.


    Dear community,

    This problem began when I first installed the Fall Creator's Update (1709) last year. Since then, it's been nothing but sync issues. I created a new Microsoft Account, just to try and see what happens when I try to sync passwords, theme and other things. It worked once, then nothing more.

    This is getting really frustrating, because in Firefox, and Chrome, it works flawlessly. I'd prefer using Edge, as I don't like any third-party replacements/compliments for already existing software in an operating system.

    So, I am basically reaching out to anyone here, who experiences the same "sync bug" in the April 2018 Update of Windows 10, as that's the version I'm running right now.

    Lastly, the Microsoft Account troubleshooter doesn't work, either.

    To me, that window doesn't even show up.

    EDIT: Isn't that for a domain?

    EDIT2: This is what it looks like to me, please just ignore the swedish language. Basically everything is set to "On".

    I have done just as you mentioned. Both my desktop and laptop are both signed in, autheticated as trusted devices. So it still has to be something with my Microsoft Account. At least that's what I make out of it.

    EDIT: I can switch to english if necessary.

    EDIT2: In English (UK)

    Now I've made a brand new Microsoft account, and still, my theme doesn't sync to the other computer, nor does the passwords. I don't bother with the favorites anymore. Both computers are of course connected to my Microsoft account and verified.

    This is getting really frustrating to say the least. I opened a chat with Microsoft's support, and they said that it "should work.", but apparently, it does not.

    UPDATE: The sync triggered today, sometime today. As the laptop now as the passwords and autofill content from my desktop. So, it works, but certainly seems to take a while. Oh well, it seems as it works at least. So I am not going to complain if it at least works.

    Solution: Go do something else, and let it sync automatically.

    Even more strange now is, when I'm trying to sync themes which seems to be the only issue at the moment, it only seems to sync after the first login to a new Microsoft account. I have no clue why it only syncs then and not otherwise.
