So annoying, that computer will ON ITS OWN change it's screensaver to another from the selection and I would not want it to be viewed in the environment where that computer lives.

Hi there, I am signed into a Windows 10 machine with my Office 365 (AzureAD) - (it is a "Workplace or school account") however when I try and enable 'Sync your Settings', I can change it to ON, but then when I click away and come back to this section, it is not saving the change (it is like it does not want to be enabled).
To further isolate the concern, have you verified if the PC's sync settings are actually turned on/off? To check the sync settings, see below: Open Start, and then click on Settings. Click on Accounts. Under Accounts, click on Sync your settings. Check if Sync settings is turned On. If not, click on the switch to turn it on.
