Help on Sync iPad & iPhone to my Windows 7 Notebook via iCloud

We have an iPad 1 and iPhone 4.  We just finished configuring both units to sync to iCloud for the purpose of not attaching the iPad to our PC, sync it, then attaching iPhone to our PC and sync it to have all 3 units (iPhone, iPad, PC) in sync.  I guess the last part is iCloud in the PC which we haven't done yet.

In essence what we want is to modify any contents in the iPad and have the iPhone and PC sync automatically; also all 3 way around, any modification in the PC and have both iPad and iPhone units sync.

How do we setup iCloud in PC to make this happen?

Can this be done, as we intend, have all 3 units sync automatically?

Is it really automatically or we have to manually "click" each time we want to sync?

Please advice

iCloud does what you want:  you can sync all of your devices, and a change made on one will promptly propagate to the others, without your affirmative intervention.  You don't have to "click"; it just happens.

Before connecting any device to iCloud for the first time, make a backup (to something other than iCloud) of the most current version of your contacts, calendars, etc., so that if you somehow screw up and overwrite your data with the "empty" contents of one of your other devices, you can get your data back and try again.

This answers the last 2 part question.  How about the first:

    How do we setup iCloud in PC to make this happen?
You would download and install the iCloud control panel from Apple, available here:   (with instructions).

Note that it only runs on Windows 7 and Vista Service Pack 2 or better.  If you're still using XP, you're out of luck.
