Windows 10: Windows 10 sync Solved

    Windows 10 sync

    Even being the neophyte and amateur I am, I like to think my spending 2 to 3 hours a day learning all I can about Windows would have taught me that W10 started something new with the sync process. I guess I missed that part. But, with the November update, I had major problems with my NAS due to the sync.

    I had to sign into my Microsoft account with a password to get the OS to start. There was no prior announcement of which I was aware to alert the average user this would be in effect. I spent a week trying to figure out what was wrong until I learned one could sign in as a 'local user'.

    So I lose the sync capability. So what? I don't need it. I use the Home edition of W10. I have 1 PC and 2 laptops and a very capable network setup. Why did Microsoft decide for me that I wanted to sync all my computers in the cloud?

    Hello jshaw42, :)

    If you like, you can turn on or off your sync settings at will, and still use a Microsoft account.

    Thank you, I have done that. The process was not the problem. Having to dig for the information was.
