My Apperence theme and login screen themes changes whenever I login Back (after shutting down)

Hello Everyone,
I am kind of facing a problem Which I am not able to Understand or Explain ! SO I will try my best to explain it.

When Last Time I used Garuda I did a lot of customization and changes ! (Like changing wallpapers and Appearance theme to sweet !).
And Then I leave the session from top right corner.
And My laptop shuts down.

But problem begins after I Turn my laptop On and Login back
All my themes and Customizations + Changes and My wallpapers are gone. Even Style of my toolbar buttons changed, and Now I am not even able to find that Sweet theme in my apperence !

Am not understanding that the hell is wrong with my version of distro !
This happened 3 time now ! The first 2 time when it happened I have to used my timeshift snapshot of a day before to restore everything back to Normal

If anyone can Help me Out ! Then I will be very thankful to you !
Your Truly.

So yeah, nice that you made a thread here, welcome :slight_smile:
Which account are you using when doing the changes? As @SGS pointed out already, the guest account deletes data after shutting down.

To be clear, if you install garuda you set a user and password.

You log in with this user?

When you remove the guest user from the user settings, it will reappear after reboot.
This happend to me and I accidently logged into the guest account again.

See here, how to remove it properly:

It reads as f you made your customizations after restoring from a snapshot, but haven't created a new snapshot subsequently, so have lost all your pretty stuff.
