Windows 7: Adding new user account questions

Adding new user account questions

Hi All,

Hope I'm posting in the right forum. I have a fairly new Windows 7 laptop. I have one "standard" user account named Jason. I want to create an additional user account for my wife (Kate). The procedure looks pretty straight forward, but I do have some questions.

1. Are all the programs/applications that I have installed for my standard account available to the new user account (for example Word, Excel, etc)?

2. What about browers? I have downloaded a number of browsers including Firefox, Groogle Chrome. Will she be able to use these are must she download her own "copy" of the browser? Guess my concern for browsers is keeping the settings I use separate from the settings she might want.

Hope this makes sense ...... Thanks much ........ Jason

as long as you have installed the programs to use with all users and not a specific one, most programs should work fine like explorers,software etc. i created a user for my sister before travelling and she was able to access all programs normally but without administrator rights(i didnt want it)
1- office would work fine
2- if the browsers are installed she can immediatly use them
