    Disable wallpaper syncing

    Now that I've installed Windows 8 on both my desktop and laptop, I'm impressed by some of the new account syncing abilities. However I hate that I change the wallpaper on my tiny laptop and not 10 seconds later my huge desktop monitor is in the loop, with the low res wallpaper stretched across it. I don't want to disable syncing, just the wallpaper. Anyone know how?

    Go to Metro Control Panel, select Sync your Settings and turn off Desktop Personalisation.
