    Desktop preferences not saved

    Hi ! I've just received my new laptop with Windows 8 and already have some issues with it. Whenever I change my desktop settings (not display icons, theme) it is not saved when I reboot. Is there something I forgot to do ?

    Thank you !

    You might have an other device with windows 8 on it. If you run them both on the same Microsoft account its going to synchronise stuff like your theme. So if you set the theme to a different theme on your first device but its still the old one on the second device it might synchronise to second (old) settings.
