Two Windows  10  - laptop and desktop. Want to use the same user id for a Microsoft  account on each computer.  Laptop set up originally with the MS account and has a users/userid folder containing my Outlook mail files. The desktop has a users/(unknown) folder.  If I login to the MS account on the desktop, will that create the users/userid on that machine?

And then will I be able to move my Outlook files to the desktop?  Remove them from the laptop?


My email userid is now
