    Migrate Settings, Programs, Files to another user


    Hi,

    Is it possible to migrate settings, programs and files to another user in Windows 10 Pro?

    Or...

    Is it possible to just change the user accounts name, email address etc without having to migrate anything?

    If so, how?

    Thanks.

    Any files & programs will already be available to any user. As for settings, they are user specific. You are better off using a local account. Now if the person already has a Microsoft Live account, their roaming profile will load when they log into the machine.
