Windows 7: How users work

How users work

I've been wondering for quite a long time now how users are handled. When I look in the "users" folder, I have Public access, "Default" user , "All users" and "Myname" user folder. Some folders have locks on them .... What is this all about ? Is there a way to just have one user with all permissions ?
If anyone can help to understand this, that would be great. Many thanks

I don't think there is any easy way of doing what you want and I'm not sure if the information in this Microsoft support article is what you're afterm, but I'll post it anyway.
