    Can one fix a corrupted profile the same way as they did in Win 7?


    The title is the question.

    I can't think of any reason why not. The fixes for 7 worked for 8/8.1 so should be good for 10.

    The reason I asked is because I tried using the Win7 instructions, allowing that some things are in different places and when I got to the final for Win7 it would not l copy and paste. It would not even give an indication that I had tried to do so. I was hoping someone had done this and could tell me how or help find what I did wrong.

    Are you trying to setup a new account then put over all your files?

    Yes, following the instructions given in the Win7 help files for fixing a corrupt user account. I did not find how to do it in Win10.

    There should be one for Windows 8/8.1 but I can't find it. That should be closer to Windows 10 I would think.
