  1. Account template


    Hi there, Is it possible to configure a default account template of sorts so that when a new profile is added (local or domain account) it follows those preconfigured settings? I.e region settings (number separators, date format etc.) and other elements such as mapped drives etc that is usually stored on an account specific basis?

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

  4. Account template

    Folder Template with shortcut to folder inside folder.

    I showed you the principle of a method that will do what you wish. To apply it to any folder structure you need to understand how it works.

    • In my shortcut I defined the "Start in" folder as %CD%. This means that the shortcut must use the
      current folder as its base. In my example this was C:\Templates\Template1\TestA.
    • For the shortcut I used this command line:

      explorer.exe ..\TestB\Target

      What exactly does this do? Here is the explanation:

      1. "..\" tells Explorer to step on up in the directory tree:

      C:\Templates\Template1\TestA -> C:\Templates\Template1

      2. "TestB" tells Explorer to steop one down in the directory tree:

      C:\Templates\Template1 -> C:\Templates\Template1\TestB

      3. "Target" tells Explorer to open the file or folder "Target".
    Applying this knowledge, you could create a shortcut that makes Explorer step up two folders:

    Explorer.exe ..\..\Template2\TestB\Target

    C:\Templates\Template1\TestA

    -> C:\Templates\Template1

    -> C:\Templates

    -> C:\Templates\Template2

    -> C:\Templates\Template1\TestB

    -> Open "Target"

    Armed with this knowledge you can now fix your shortcut yourself.
