Windows 10 gives us the option of accessing the operating system with a local account or with an online account associated either with Hotmail or Outlook, and the latter allows everything we do on the devices where we have logged in with that account can be synchronized.
This option helps us save time and be able to share information between different devices just by having the same session started. If we stop using one of these devices or we no longer use that email account, we must bear in mind that eliminating the synchronization options may be the best option.
