    Modify the temporary user profile


    Hi,

    Many family members and their children come to my house and use my laptop. However, several times, they have wrecked my personal user account.

    I have setup a local account for this matter, called Visitor. In the users folder, I renamed 'visitor' to 'visitor1', so that the account would reset everytime they logged out, so no damage done to the account.

    However, the account comes preloaded with candy crush saga, edge, and all the default start menu layout.

    Can I change the temporary account look and feel so that the visitor account logs in with a specific look, with specific apps and tile arrangements?

    Thank you

    Hello Mattley, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you might set up a guest account using the method in the tutorial below to see if that account may server your needs.

    Hi,

    It appears the video you've linked me is for Windows 10 Pro, and I have Windows 10 Home.
