Can desktop be copied to new profile?
Can someone tell me if my current desktop - not just the picture but also the shortcuts and files on there- can be copied to a new profile? If so, how do I do this and have the programs work? Currently just have a new profile but haven't copied any of my files to it yet. Been having admin issues with the existing profile like not being able to do certain deletes, thumbnails not all showing. etc.

Create the new profile.
Logoff the old profile and login the new profile.
Open My Computer and navigate to C:\Users.
Expand the old profile name until you see Desktop.
Select everything in the Desktop folder then right click and select Copy.
Navigate to the new Desktop folder under the new profile then right click and select Paste.
That should do it.
