Question

Hidden files and folders

by mdchittum / September 15, 2016 7:54 PM PDT

I am having trouble with my hidden files and folders. I want to show them on one computer and not my other computers linked to my account. For example, I want hidden files and folders turned on on my desktop but not on my laptop. Seems when I turn them on, on one, they turn on both. I do not want this! I just want them on, on one not the other! Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

For some reason it does! I have watched it happen in real time.. When I turn them on on one they pop up on the other. I have even messed with the windows 10 sync options by turning individual things off...even when I turn sync off totally it still happens.

Settings sync. So it's game over.

Back to local logins if you want to regain control per PC and account.

I kind of figured that was going to be the case!
