June 17th, 2013 | Posted by Costea Lestoc in Content

I have already talked about Windows 8 synching features. However, I have more information to share with all of you on this and below, I will do the same.

A question that engulfs minds of most of the users is that what happens if a user logs into a new computer? Well, in those scenarios, Windows will automatically download the settings that are tied to your Microsoft account and set up your new computer accordingly. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?

Metered Connections

You can control synchronization process over the metered connections. The mobile networks are set as metered by Windows 8 by default. If you disable this option, you will not be able to sync on networks where you will be charged for the amount of data which you use. This will reduce the mobile data and thereby help you to save some cash.


Whatever files that you store in the SkyDrive are tied to the Microsoft account you use and you can access all of those from the Modern SkyDrive app as well. You can even access those files right from your desktop, but for that, you need to install the SkyDrive desktop app. This does not come by default with windows.

Sync Data Removal

The Windows 8 Personal Settings website of Microsoft will let you erase all of the synched settings. First of all, the sync setting has to be manually disabled in all of the Windows 8 computers that you use. Next step is to visit the website mentioned above and click on the Remove button to delete all of your personal settings from the Cloud.

According to preliminary reports, Windows 8.1 which will be known as Windows Blue will have more sync options such as open tabs in the internet explorer, layout of the pinned tiles on the Start screen etc.
