    I am configuring a new Surface Pro 4

    I started with a local account for Administrator. I then installed the updates for the "upgrading" (whatever upgrade that was). The version is now 1703 (OS build 15063.540)

    Then added a new Microsoft account. That MS account is being used in another laptop. I have a lot of apps and the start menu with a given layout I like.

    In the laptop all Sync settings are turned on

    However, when I log in to the MS account in the SP4, none of that is restored. I get the default layout of the Start menu, and none of my apps are being downloaded

    How can I fix this?

    In the past, with Windows 8, the restoring process was automatic

    Was that discontinued?

    I just checked my account backups in Onedrive

    The last backup is from my Windows 8 tablet back from May. There is no backup from my laptop with Windows 10 at all in any date. When I first configured my Windows 10 laptop, it restored the Windows 8 backup easily.

    Question:

    how to force the laptop with Windows 10 to save a backup to Onedrive?

    As I said all the Sync settings are turned on

    What a bunch of idiots @ MS

    They discontinued this feature:
