    So I updated my Lenovo 510p and my Asus VivoTab Smart. And I've noticed there isn't really customization. My lock screen picture can be changed and my desktop background and color can be changed. But they do not sync between the systems. Nor does the start menu sync between systems. And I've also noticed on my tablet when I swipe up my lock screen it has a different color and I can't change it. Just wondering if there is a way to change it or if its coming in future builds other than that not a problem with my systems so far!! Cortana is very buggy.

    I've only installed on one system so far. However, it pulled in all of my customizations from my Win 8.1 machines. Notably, it used the same desktop background.

    By the way, please comment on how well the Vivotab Smart tolerates W10, Cortana, and Hey! Cortana. I have one, but I don't want to install W10 on it yet because I'm worried it won't run very well with it.

    Syncing (once turned on) works fine for me.
    And I wouldn't be too worried about lots of customisation at this stage, it's a technical preview, hence the name "Windows 10 Technical Preview", the UI is far from finished.

    The background to my start screen is grey instead of my start screen or my desktop photo and that stupid list wont go from the left hand side, making the start screen poor in the extreme at present but that's what feedback is for and that's the thing its a very very early build yet use it as is and importantly send feedback!

    Go to Settings -> Account -> Sync and turn theme and the rest of the sync settings on :)

    Go to system properties and advanced properties and settings on performance. Make sure they are checked for the features. Mine by default had some unchecked and so my colors were jacked.

    Cortana is not yet ready for prime time Maybe you missed some of the posted stories about this release but its worth a few minutes to read it OP. I rather like discovery aspect of new software but I understand its not everyone's cup of tea. Some would rather all aspects of beta or preview code work flawlessly but this ain't exactly Xanadu. Not yet anyway.

    It works great so far! Cortana is okay she's not perfect just yet. Only problem I've noticed with the Vivotab is the Windows button doesn't work but its not really useful anymore! My keyboard works good as well!

    And thanks everyone for the comments. After playing with Windows 10 on both systems I've gotten the Sync things to work. And so far everything works okay. Im shocked actually. The only thing that bUgs me is the Live tiles can't be turned off. But its cool I'm sure it will come in later builds!

    Isn't this a alpha/beta build? I'd assume some of the features aren't in yet.

    It is and actually that's sort of the beauty of it, playing in an unfinished world in which your feedback along with that of others may help determine certain aspects
