Desktop background is syncing between domain joined Windows 10 and Azure AD joined Windows 10 devices??


  • I have two Windows 10 devices. One is joined to a traditional domain; the other is joined to the my Azure AD. My traditional domain is synced with Azure via Azure AD Connect. I noticed recently that every time I change the desktop background on one device, it is changed accordingly on the other...even if it is a custom background image.

    No problem with this but it has me wondering...what is the mechanism by which these devices are syncing with each other? And what other syncing is possible? I've not made any changes in Group Policy on the traditional domain. Intune is active but it is only enforcing policies on the Azure AD-joined device.
