  1. Duplicating a user down to the deepest level on Windows 10


    Hello,


    I use my computer for all around stuff. Work, 2nd job, light games, multimedia and more.

    This same computer is used in my Sound Production Studio, Using Cubase 9.5 with hundreds of installed plugins, all legit.. licensed in Iloc, E-Licencer, etc.

    But I Need to separate the studio from my other activities. Creating a new user and reinstalling all relevant software will be a never ending mess! Is there any way to duplicate the user/profile in Windows 10, So I can, afterwards, just clean the duplicant user from everything that I don't need ?


    The duplication is for the same PC Only!

    It must be a duplication down to the user-registry hive because otherwise all the settings and licenses will be lost!


    Is it doable ?


    (yes, I've asked this before but never received a useful and non-destructive answer)


    Please help!

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
