    Windows uses the same wallpaper on all of my computers


    I have this big issue that Windows automaticly changes my desktop wallpaper, to wherever I updated it the last. So in my case, I just bought a new laptop with Windows 8. When I was done going through the setup of the laptop, windows had changed the wallpaper of my laptop, to the one on my desktop computer. The problem is, that my desktop computer has 2 monitors, so windows had squeezed the both in, on the screen of my laptop.
    Then I changed the wallpaper on my laptop, and sure enough... it has changed to the same wallpaper on my desktop computer... same image on both screens! Are there any way to disable the automatic sharing of my wallpaper?
    Because it annoys the hell out of me! It is because I log in on the same Microsoft account on both of my computers, but there has got to be a way to disable it!? I cannot find a single thread with the same issue anywhere on the internet!
    Help!!!

    Hi,

    Have not tried it (don't use syncing) but this should do it for you:

    Disable wallpaper syncing

    Hope this helps.
