1581. Sync Windows 8 Settings using OneDrive

I use Windows 8 on my home computer and my work computer and I would like to synchronize my settings such as my desktop background on both computers. Is there a way to do this?

Windows 8 is really configured for just this sort of thing. All the settings you might make on one computer can easily be transferred to another using the built-in sync settings. There is an article on our website that shows you how you can set this up and actually it is turned on by default as long as you log into Windows using your Microsoft account. 

Then, your information will be synchronized using Microsoft’s OneDrive. There are a lot of settings you can change that change what items you will actually synchronize and those are pointed out in the article we point to on our website. So check it out, this is easy to set up and it makes it really nice for moving from one computer to another.
