    Windows 10 Enterprise: Is it possible to setup for a single user?


    I am trying to figure out how to tell Windows 10 Enterprise that there is, and always will be, just one user account on the machine.

    My goal is to fully block and prevent the use of the Public folder. I also want to fully block and prevent the use of the "all users" folder for start menu shortcuts.

    I know the Public folder can be hidden. This does not prevent third-party software from using it, which means I still need to check multiple locations for files that were saved during certain installation processes. DevExpress and Adobe are two companies that dump a great many files into the Public folder, and they are just examples.

    Some Open/Save windows also default to the Public folder even if hidden.

    The same happens when applications install without giving the option of installing only for the current user. Many dump their application shortcuts into the all users folder of the start menu.

    So, what I am trying to do is somehow tell Windows 10 that on the machine in question, from now until the end of time, there is just a single user and these extraneous folders do not need to exist.

    Thanks for any hints on how to accomplish this, assuming it is possible.

    :)

    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

    "Hi All,
    We stronly advise Comodo users not to update to latest MS update KB4022716, which is available for Windows 10 users till they have new fixed version of Comodo internet security products installed.

    Affected Products:
    - Comodo Internet Security / Comodo Antivirus / Comodo Firewall (Affected versions: v6246 and below)
    - Comodo Cloud Antivirus (Affected versions: v533 and below)
    - Internet Security Essentials (Affected versions: v81 and below)
    - Comodo Secure Shopping (Affected versions: v97 and below)

    Possible Problems:
    In case you have updated to MS update KB4022716 prior to updating to latest fixed version of Comodo products, following issues may appear:

    - Crashing browsers
    - May not be able to login to Windows

    Resolution:
    If you are able to login, you can uninstall Comodo and re-install latest fixed Comodo version. Else you need to go to Windows Safe Mode and uninstall Comodo product or re-store system to state before Comodo product was installed.

    In case you want to keep Comodo and pause Windows updates for some time, you may use following steps:
    Step - 1: Click on Start icon on Windows
    Step - 2: Next click on Settings menu item, it will open "Windows Settings" window
    Step - 3: Select "Update & Security" section from there and it will show "Windows Update" section
    Step - 4: Click on "Advanced Options" next, there is "Pause Updates" section allowing you to pause Windows updates for next several days

    You can find same steps with images here .

    Reason:
    There are unexpected changes in last MS update KB4022716, which are incompatible with Comodo products.
