    I have two computers. The one I'm on now is wireless and the second one is wired in another room. For some reason that I cannot fix, when I change the theme on one computer it changes it on the other one as well. I have gone into the advanced network settings and turned off all of the discovery and sharing options that I can find but it still keeps happening. I don't want to sync the two computers and there is no need for them to be talking to each other. Any idea what setting I'm missing or how I can disable this theme sharing thing? Both of them are using the same MS account and password.

    Never mind. I figured it out. When I thought about the word sync the light came on over my head and I had a V8 moment. Searched sync and sure enough it was turned on for both computers. Turned it off and I think the problem is resolved.
