Windows 8 to store personal settings across PCs
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Windows 8 is aiming to take away the hassle of the traditional Windows operating system. Re-installs and new computers are no obstacle to having a personalised experience available instantly. By associating settings for Windows 8 with a Windows Live profile the user can seamlessly access their own personalised Windows 8 operating system on any computer with Windows 8 installed and with Internet Access. Syncing commonly used settings with the Windows Live cloud store service users can take their settings from home, to work, to internet cafes or to a friend’s house easily. Users can:
- Associate the most commonly used Windows settings with your user account. Saved settings are available when you sign in to your account on any Windows 8 PC. Your PC will be set up just the way you are used to!
- Easily reacquire your Metro style apps on multiple Windows 8 PCs. The app’s settings and last-used state persist across all your Windows 8 PCs.
- Save sign-in credentials for the different apps and websites you use and easily get back into them without having to enter credentials every time.
- Automatically sign in to apps and services that use Windows Live ID for authentication.
