Windows 7: How to make all users desktops same as Admins

How to make all users desktops same as Admins

Haven't been able to get an answer on the W2000 forums, so here goes:

I recently had to reinstall W2000 Pro on my old computer, so I am the Administrator--a new experience for me. Managed to also make myself a "Backup Operator", because somewhere I read it's not a good idea to always run W2000 as an Admin.

So, now that I've made a decent looking desktop as the Admin., how can I use the same desktop as my new "Backup Op"?

Also, should I make myself a "Power User" instead of a Backup OP?

Google a little on Windows profile cloning, but be aware the procedure differs for whatever OS you're talking about - and W2K isn't really an operating system meant for discussion in detail on a W7 forum...

FYI, 'Backup operator' references the ability to run system backups, not that the account is a backup/fall-back account, you might be better off running as a power user.

If you want all users to have the same desktop (and it doesn't change frequently), put the required icons in the "All Users" profile in the Desktop folder.
