How to unlink SkyDrive on Windows 8.1?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi!
I have two accounts, one account which has a SkyDrive linked to it, this Microsoft account holds all of my data on SkyDrive.
I have just installed and activated Windows 8.1 using a new outlook address, but I would like to use my SkyDrive which is linked to my "old" outlook address.
How can I unlink my SkyDrive, and log in with the "older" Microsoft account to use SkyDrive?
I am using that address on my laptop, and since the "sync your wallpapers, color settings" etc. is irritating me I would not like to use the same Microsoft account on my desktop as well.
Thanks!

I'm not sure about how to link to a different skydrive, but you can disable all of the syncing of wallpapers, colors, etc.

To change the sync settings:

Windows Key + C
Click Settings Icon
Click Change PC Settings at the bottom
This should open the PC settings metro app (don't ask me why this isn't in the control panel)
Click the skydrive tab along the left side
Under sync settings you can change what all is synced between your pcs (ones using the same account)
