    Windows 10

    I added my wife to my windows 10 PC and she sees my desktop shortcuts

    I added my wife an account on my windows 10 PC and she sees my desktop shortcuts. Everything else is new like the documents folders and desktop background but all of my desktop shortcuts are on her desktop. If you try deleting them it asked for my password for permission. This must be a bug a but I haven't found anything out on the internet. Has anyone seen this before?

    Your desktop shortcuts must have been set up via a default user profile or for all users on your PC. Any new users you add will automatically see them but not have permission to delete them.

    For an explanation of how this works see:
