We have a number of systems with one sign-on that is tied into our Microsoft ID (Live ID).
Besides the ability to keep our Metro UI experience relatively seamless across those systems we can also share the desktop backgrounds across them.
The path for the pictures is:
- First, right click on the desktop and click Personalize.
- Make sure Synced Theme is chosen.
Our preference is to set the images to Fit instead of stretch.
Once this process has been completed the desktop backgrounds on all Windows 8 machines tied in with that Microsoft ID will show the same.
NOTE: Once this process has completed Windows 8 under Personalization may show “Unsaved Theme” as being selected. Change the setting back to Synced Theme.
