    hello, hope all is well

    How do you setup a standard desktop so that when a person logins the first time he has all the necessary files and links, Also I have heard of it but never seen it, a way to have a person destop move with them, so that when they login in at a different workstation their desktop and setting move with them??

    Assuming you are using Windows 2000 or above with a Windows Server somewhere in the equation.....
    1) To create a "standard desktop" copy shortcuts to the "Default User" profile (it is hidden inside C:\Documents & Settings. Every new user will get a copy of it. To force stuff to existing users, put it into the "All Users" profile

    2) You will need "Roaming Profiles". If you have Active Directory this is done by specifying the profile path for the user in Active Directory Users and Computers. If you don't it is more complex. Either way you create a share on a server and point the user profiles to that location.

    will help you with more details....
