win8 2 Computers 1 Windows ID

Hi,

I've Windows 8 installed in my laptop since it's out, I use my live account to login. In one month I'll refresh my desktop and I'll install Windows 8 and use the same live account to login.

I use my laptop at work and when I come home I connect it to my network and use remote desktop to check and prepare my next work day. Can I still do it when my desktop will be upgrade?

I ask this question since I'll use the same Windows ID on the two computer and on the same network.

Thanks ;)

Yes you can, and they will synchronise a bit too!

For instance I have a desktop and a tablet both using the same Windows ID , if I change the 'Metro' theme or the desktop wallpaper on one , it'll change on the other too!

Yes , all that synchronizes too.

As soon as you login with your Windows ID on a new install of Windows 8 , it will all synchronize automatically.
