  • Microsoft account and deleting all settings of Windows 10 Preview

    Hi
    I am using an account with Microsoft Windows 10 Preview and I saved all settings in an account live.it.

    How do I delete all these settings so that when will reinstall Windows 10 with the same Microsoft account, all the default settings remain?
    Thanks

    Approximately 30 seconds with gave the answer for Windows 8 - the same should work for Windows 10
    All the key words are in your second sentence

      These answers do not work with Windows 10.

      So, is there a way, via the web, to remove all settings that Windows 10 Preview saves during synchronization from a Microsoft account?

      Thanks

        What exactly did you try doing?

        Thanks

          The problem is this:

          When I install a new Windows 10 Preview, I create a local account, I configure it and I turned it into a Microsoft account, my settings will return to the saved settings (where?) two weeks ago.

          So how do I delete these old settings?

          Thanks

          Bye

            Did you follow the advice for removing the settings with a Windows 8 device?
            If so, what exactly did you do and what messages/results did you get?
            If not, try doing it - the OSes are not that different.

            Thanks

              Looking at the picture 4 of the step 4 of this link http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadF...in-windows-10/ , I noticed that the window for data synchronization, which lets choose which data to sync, is never displayed when I step from a local to Microsoft account.

              Why this window does not appear?

              Thanks

                Something wrong with the account setup?
                Try creating a new account and syncing ideally to a different Microsoft account (create a new Hotmail address)
                See what happens then

                Thanks

                  I already tried this but that window does not appear. Why?

                  Thanks
