Question

Hidden files and folders

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!

It does

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.

If you are using email logins.

Settings sync. So it's game over.

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

Yep!

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