    Synching my settings in Windows 10

    When I attempt to Synch my settings in Windows 10, I get the message "Some Windows features are only available if you are using a Microsoft account or work account". I opened my Microsoft account, but still get the message and it won't allow me to turn on any of the switches to synch. Any help would be appreciated>

    Hi. I believe you need a Microsoft account in order to take full advantage of syncing as it stores the data in your account. You need to go to Settings - Accounts and swap to online Microsoft account for it to work.
