Connect your domain and Microsoft accounts
Using a Microsoft account (formerly known as Windows Live ID) is the best way to ensure that settings stay in sync. It also allows you to log on to services like SkyDrive without having to enter your credentials.
For home and small business users, you can do this at setup. If you're signed in with a Windows domain account, you need to go through one extra step.
From PC Settings, click Users and follow the prompts to connect your domain account to a Microsoft account. You can decide on this screen exactly what you want to sync.
