Xp account setup
I havent used Xp or 9x for a long long time now, and I was never into creating accounts and the like when I did,
Basically Ive just installed Xp for my family, and set up accounts for them. In my account I have admin privaliges, and was woundering how would i go about makeing what i have in my desktop and setup the same in all accounts?
Is there a quick way to mirror an account to the next?
I have xp professional, with 4 accounts 1 of them admin

I think you need to create a "workgroup" and make them all members of that. You then setup the desktop, access etc fot the workgroup, rater than the individual accounts.

Also, if you're just concerned about what all accounts are seeing on their desktop and in their 'start' menu, just open up an explorer window and go to your c:\Documents and Settings\All Users folder (assuming you've installed to drive C). Anything you place in the Desktop, Favorites, and Start Menu subdirectories will be available across all accounts.
