Windows 10: Can You Import Settings, Programs and Files into a new User Account?
Can You Import Settings, Programs and Files into a new User Account?
I think all the issues I am having with W10 are user account based. Under Users on the C: drive, I have two Users being shown. I have no idea how that happened. I tried to figure out which one Windows was using, which I thought I did and deleted the other one (names it user.old, actually). Windows recreated that user directory. And now I am having issues searching my computer using the W10 search. I believe this is user related as I created a dummy user account and search worked perfectly when I logged into it. I really need search in my work.
So my question is, after that wordy intro, is there a way to create a new User with Admin rights and then import all my settings, programs, and files to that new account so everything runs like it does on my current user account, but without all the user problems? Maybe this wouldn't solve my issues, but it seems as if it would be worth a shot.
A in-place repair is not a viable option for me as I continually get the Modern Host error during the setup.
Anyway, thanks for any thoughts on this.
How to Change User Account Control (UAC) Settings in Windows 10
User Account Control (UAC) helps prevent malware from damaging a computer and helps organizations deploy a better-managed desktop environment. With UAC, apps and tasks always run in...
I have UAC set one level below default, most programs will run without asking permission, however, Auslogics Defrag and Malwarebytes amongst some others, always need permission to run. How do I give these programs permanent permission to run?
Is there a setting that will allow me to access all documents and and apps in both user account and administrator account? I can not find one!
while try to write a path for addons such as a game, there is no user available in the folder is anyone else on windows 10 having this problem?
Is it possible to migrate settings, programs and files to another user in Windows 10 Pro?
Is it possible to just change the user accounts name, email address etc without having to migrate anything?
If so, how?
