Synchronize to the OneDrive Cloud Storage Account 3:52-5:34 So at this point we need to configure what exactly it is that we want synchronized to that OneDrive Cloud Storage account. Let's go over here to the search icon and we'll just type "sync" and click on "Sync Settings" here we can configure what we want synced up to OneDrive. First of all we can turn synchronization off or on with this slider, let's go ahead and leave it on. We can also synchronize our personalization settings the personalization settings that we've configured for our user account, such as your Start screen, your background colors, and your themes and so on. We can also synchronize apps and this is kind of cool because if I install a Windows Store app on this system using this user account and then log in to another system somewhere else with that same user account, I can pull that same app down on to that system, without having to pay for it a second time. So we're going to synchronize a list of apps that are installed as well as our app data. We can also synchronize other data such as our browser favorites, our open tabs homepages history and so on. We can synchronize our passwords that we use to access websites and networks. We can synchronize our language preferences, any accessibility settings we've configured. As well as our mouse and printer settings too. I'm going to leave all of these set. Now there is one other thing I want to show you right here and that is whether or not synchronize settings over a metered connection if this is a mobile device that uses mobile broadband connection where you have to pay for your bandwidth. Then you may want to constrain how much data is synchronized through your OneDrive account. For example, right now we're going to allow data to be synchronized over a metered connection. But we're not going to do it if we're roaming. We'll leave that set the way it is. Associate Windows 10 User with an Online Account 5:35-7:08 Now let's switch over to a Windows 10 system. Now Windows 10 also uses online user accounts and if we come down here we can see that I'm currently logged in as a local user again named MFinn. I want to associate this MFinn user on this Windows 10 system with the same online user account that I used for my Windows 8 system. Let's go down here to settings and go down to accounts. Notice that MFinn, as before is a local account. We want to sign in with a Microsoft account instead. We'll enter in the email address the same one as we used before. And we'll enter the same password. Sign in. We need to provide our old password. And we have the option of setting up a PIN to authenticate to the system. We're not going to worry about that in this demo so we'll skip that step. And now I'm currently authenticated to the system as my Mary Finn user account. Let's come down here to 'Sync your settings' and here we can configure similar settings to those we configured on the other system. Such as our theme, our web browser settings, our passwords, language preferences, accessibility and other settings. And notice as soon as I do the preferences from my Windows 8 system are automatically applied over

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
