For a while, I've had multiple Win10 machines - my desktop and one or more tablets (Wookietab, Surface 3 Pro, Surface Go) and one thing has annoyed the heck out of me.

If I changed the KB layout on the Wookietab (because it had a US keyboard) or on the Surface 3 / Go (because the layout is ... not totally standard ... ) then it was reflected on desktop because I use the same MS ID to log into all of them. Which I do want to do, because it means I can restore files and so on because I as the one-and-only user own them regardless of the machine I backed up from.

And recently I've replaced Herself's Surface 3 Pro with a new Android tablet because she never got on with it, too heavy, too "not the same" as her Android phone, tablet, blah, blah.
So I'm repurposing it as a kitchen tablet for recipes mostly - which means I want "one touch open" for desktop icons.

And - you guessed - it syncs that with my desktop, where it's a total PITA! Mad | :mad:

But ... I just found it:
Settings...Accounts...Sync Your Settings...Other Windows Settings

Turn that off, and it all stops. Phew!

It may not seem like a lot, but different devices have different needs, different hardware - so switching how that works because I did something on a different machine is very frustrating. Honest! Big Grin | :-D
