When you run Visual Studio 2015 for the first time and login, it will automatically enable the IDE settings synchronization to have a smooth experience across all devices where you use Visual Studio. But in case, this synchronization settings get disable, you can re-enable it.

 

To do so, open Visual Studio 2015 IDE and navigate to Tools menu –> Options, as shown in the below screenshot:

From the IDE options dialog, navigate to Environment –> Synchronized Settings, as shown in the below screenshot. In the right side panel, you will find a checkbox labelled “Synchronize settings across devices when signed into Visual Studio”.

 

If it is unchecked, synchronization is disabled. To enable it, just check it and save the settings by clicking the “OK” button. Next time when you open Visual Studio in your other device (having the same account credential), you will find the same experience in that device too.
