    My wife and I have a laptop each that I have recently upgraded to Windows 10.
    Each has a unique desktop wallpaper. However, they keep changing.
    Every time I install the picture I want as wallpaper on my laptop, my wife's wallpaper changes to that wallpaper as well. Then, as soon as I change hers back to her preferred wallpaper, my laptop changes its wallpaper to HER wallpaper.
    What is happening, and how can I correct it? Many thanks, Bruce

    Do both of you use the same Microsoft Account?

    go to Settings>Personalization > Themes > Theme settings then a new window will appear change your theme from there.
    To make sure that your laptop doesn't change your wallpaper when your wife changes her laptop's wallpaper, select any theme other than synced theme.
    There you go. This happens when you setup more than one Laptop with same email I.D and it happens with your windows phone too. hope that helps. :)

    Yes, we do have the same Microsoft account. This seems to be the issue.
    Thank you Tayyab for your solution. It has saved us much frustration.
