    I have not seen a good definition for what "Other Windows Settings" means. The best I can find on the Microsoft site is this:

    If you turn on Other Windows settings, Windows syncs some device settings (for things like printers and mouse options), File Explorer settings and notification preferences.

    I would keep that turned off if its device related just to avoid future issues.
