Log in to Windows 8 with your Windows Live ID and transfer your settings between computers

Posted: 05 Oct 2011 05:39 AM PDT

As you probably know, Windows 8 Developer Preview is available to the public, and we've spotted several new features, such as redesigned boot process for example, but besides UI changes, Microsoft has introduced the ability to sync our Windows with our Windows Live ID account.



If you work on two different computers and you want to transfer your settings from one to another, you have to do this manually, and that could be a tiresome process, but luckily, Microsoft decided to change that with Windows 8. Now you can sign in to Windows 8 with your Windows Live ID and your settings will be automatically saved and transferred to another device with Windows 8 each time when you log in with your Windows Live ID. Besides your settings, you can easily synchronize your Metro style apps, so you can edit your documents, without transferring them.

This new feature is more than welcome, especially if you have Windows 8 installed on several different devices, and we can't wait to see how will it work in the final version of Windows 8.
