Windows 10 has lot of features which are common to Windows 8.1 as well. And along with these there are lot of improvements and also new features added to Windows 10. One of the very useful feature on Windows 10 is the Sync option. The Sync setting in Windows 10 once turned on allows users to Sync settings which included themes and personalization options across multiple devices.
