Resolved question: Multiple User Accounts Issues
by Tiro_3 - 5/15/12 2:09 PM
I am currently trying to reinstall my computer with Vista Home Basic 64-bit.
I would like to have two accounts, one with administrator privileges, and one without, but otherwise alike.
I reinstalled and began installing drivers, programs, etc, and at some point I added the second, standard account also.
Nevertheless, some programs do not seem to be installed or working correctly for the standard account (e.g. Google Chrome, the internet browser).
Could this be because they are not installed for both users? Does this mean I have to manually install such programs for both users, as Chrome as no option for installing for both?
Additionally, the two desktops are not alike.
I know I can sync their shortcuts by using the public desktop folder, but I would also like taskbar and sidebar settings to be synced.
Ideally, the two accounts would completely mirror one another, except one has administrator privileges.
I am quite sure I had a set-up like this earlier on!
