Windows 7: Customize the default user profile in Windows 7

Customize the default user profile in Windows 7

I hope that I am not posting a duplicate question, but I am having some problems with the setup of a new Windows 7 PC. I am ordering new PC's for my company, and all are comming with Windows 7 now. Before, on my Windows XP PC's, I could easily setup a profile and get the settings exactly how I wanted them, then, copy that profile over the default profile. After that, anyone that logged in to the PC would have the settings that I set in the "new default" profile. I am not able to do this in Windows 7 and was hoping that someone could help me figure out how to setup a default user profile. I would really appreciate any help on this.

Thanks!!

Hi, TheMessiah (Nice Nickname btw )

Type "User Profile" (without the quotes) into start and press enter.

You should come to this screen, where you can make those changes:

sorry, I have been out for the holidays and away from the PC. I will try it tonght and see what I get, thanks!!! Just looking at the screenshot, though, I see that I have been to this window, and, if I am not mistaken, in that window, the "copy to" option is greyed out for all users EXCEPT the "default user." I want to be able to copy "my own personalized" profile to the "default profile." I hope that I am explaining this correctly. Thanks again for all the help and the compliments :0) !!
