    Windows 10 64 bit

    User desktop and switching users


    After upgrading from Win 7 64 to Win 10 64, whenever a different user logs into the computer the desktop gets screwed up for the original user. Both accounts are admin accounts; one has a password, the does not.

    Has anyone else seen this and does anyone know how to fix it?

    Thx

    Please provide more details about what on the desktop gets messed up for the original user?

    If able, please provide screenshots.

    Mark this one as resolved. I am having to reinstall everything due to getting slammed with the ransom virus so I'll have to recreate the system. I'm not going to allow a second user so it has become academic.

    Thanks for your reply.
