Following up on our extensive coverage of Windows 8 leaks and news, we have now learnt that in the recently leaked build 7955 of Windows 8, the user account roaming settings, over Windows Live Cloud, menu has been leaked. The screenshot shows a comprehensive menu with all of the options pertaining to user account roaming in Windows 8.
It was previously rumored that Microsoft will include cloud syncing in Windows 8 and this screenshot substantiates that belief. This control panel option dubbed Roaming Options and found under user accounts makes us sure that cloud syncing is coming in Windows 8. Roaming Options lets you roam the following:
Users will be able to roam their personalization and ease of access preferences, their particular language settings, application settings, Windows settings such as taskbar, explorer, search preferences and mouse settings and their website credentials also including saved wireless network profiles. Two network options have also been added, to either enable roaming on paid networks or on networks having low bandwith.
All of these settings will automatically sync to Windows Live Cloud once the user sets up the feature on their Windows 8 user account. This particular finding was originally reported on the MyDigitalLife forums.
