    Setting up a work PC for multiple users

    The biggest pain when setting up a Windows 10 Pro PC for work was all of the "per user" settings that I had to log in as each user to set various things.

    Wish there was the option when signed is as the admin to clone all settings to the users with one click.

    Wish there was an easy way to remove the games and such from all users, again in one step, not having to go in as each user to delete games.

  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.

    setting up multiple work stations with 1 admin but various independent users

    ActiveSync 4.5, multiple user profiles, no Admin Rights (AD)

    Trying to get ActiveSync 4.5 working for users in our department. We do have polices in place restricting users from installing software, they do not have admin rights.

    We had an admin user logon to a machine, perform active sync, tested the sync, it worked.

    A non-admin user logs onto the same machine, ActiveSync pops up, tries to run/install, fails.

    I am waiting to get detailed messages/errors from our IT admin..

    Is there a group policy that could be restricting use of ActiveSync? Is it possible to push ActiveSync install to all our comptuers (250+), we have multiple users use any given machine so their profile needs to be able to work with this.

    We cannot make all users admin, just to have them install activesync on a machine...

    Windows XP, running SP2 and SP3 in some cases.
