    Hi!

    I'm running Windows Vista and the main account used for installing programs has been configured completly. IE settings, WMP settings, desktop, icons.....

    Can I apply the same settings to the other 3 accounts in the PC?

    How can I do this?

    Thank you in advance!

    After a quick glance, this process doesn't seem any different than previous OS's.

    Configure your user account (don't forget screensavers, background, etc. everything will copy over). Log off and then back on as a different user with admin rights.

    Right click on my computer, choose properties, goto the Advanced tab, click on "settings" in the User Profiles section. Select your profile, click COPY TO, click change under "Permitted to use" and choose everyone, then browse above to the specific profile. You can copy to individual profiles, including "DEFAULT USER" which will cause that profile to be used by every new profile created past that point.
