  1. Added a new user by invite, will they have the same common programs?


    If I as an admin, added a user as an admin, should they see the same programs such as Chrome browser?

    I had to install chrome for the second user. And the second user is missing a bunch of icons on the lower task bar that exist on the first user.

    Situation was, I invited the second user, logged into their email, accepted invitation, then while logging onto their account, the OS was working on setting up the second user, I wiggled some cables and the PC turned itself instantly off.
    So I turned on PC, logged in as second user and who knows if it was right. I did notice I could not access another harddrive's user account folder where the harddrive is plugged into the PC internally.
    I then tried making the second user an admin, but still no access to the folder.

    So I went online and deleted or killed the second user. Resent the invite, reaccepted the invite, made the seconf user an admin and now they can open the user's picture folder.

    I am basically transferring my wife's documents, pictures, downloads to a new PC, so I put the old drive in the new PC to copy everything over. And was able to do that.

    :)

    No invite email to add family user

    Recently upgraded to windows 10 and I'm trying to add a child user account. I have added the child and put in their email address to send an invite. I still have yet to receive a invite confirmation email to their email after a day. I have tried to add
    the child user on a different computer with the same result. I have also deleted the user and tried again just in case I entered the email address wrong. I am unable to set up the parameters without the confirmation invite email. Any suggestions to work around
    this or send another invite again?

    Invitation to join family not received

    OK, I have finally got somewhere after fiddling for ages tonight. The outlook email addresses I didn't get to work, but the gmail did receive the invitation in the end, when I sent if from Family via browser. Also, I needed to log in as this gmail user
    to check the email, as it was picking up my parent login and adding the new child user as an adult and resulted in a right circular mess. Once I logged in to the laptop as the new child gmail user, I went to it's email, accepted the invitation, and it added
    me to the parent family correctly. What an unintuitive palaver! This really does need to be made clear in the instructions. Karen

    Added a new user by invite, will they have the same common programs?

    What programs a user sees when they are created depends on the settings used when installing the program, (before and after the creation of a particular user).

    Every system has a hidden account called DefaultUser - this account is used as a template for every user created so if the application is visible/usable to DefaultUser then it will be to the new user.

    Often when installing you will be presented with a choice to install for all users this choice, if selected, actually installs for DefaultUser

    Chrome actually always installs for the current user only (and installs to a non standard location in the users user's appdata )
