  • Setup toolbar for all users

    Is it possible to setup a toolbar for all users of a workstation without having to create it for each logged in user?

    Yes,
    either put it into the "All Users" profile or put it into the "Default Users" profile to get copies to all new profiles

    In general, when setting up a new PC for multiple users, create a profile as you want it, then copy it to the Default Users profile. Each new user will get a copy of "Default Users" when they first log on (unless they have an existing roaming profile)

      When you say "Copy It" do you mean using the User Profiles dialog to copy profiles or physically copying the folders and files under the Documents & Settings folder?

        Use the dialog from Control Panel -> System Properties -> Advanced -> User Profiles -> Settings.

          you can do it either way...

          i have a default profile for every department in the building. when i image the computer, i find out where its going and include that default docs folder for the correct department... i just pull them down from the file srvr and copy them into the folder.

          then, everyone that logs into that computer has the correct icons and shortcuts, which is important and required for all to work.

          or the CP works fine too.
