Windows 10: Adding new user problems
Adding new user problems
Whenever I add a new user, some of the elements of Windows 10 don't work properly. For instance, the Start Menu does not pop up, or either the right click or the left click works but not both, Also some apps like Weather try to start but immediately shut off. Even the internal Administrator account has this problem when I enable it. My own account does not have these problems so I don't know what could be causing this. By the way, it happens in two computers, one a PC and the other a Laptop. I have reinstalled a clean Windows a couple of times and still have the issues
Have you done all the clean installs from the same installation media/ISO file? Maybe download the most recent Windows 10 ISO file and create a new installation media?
You might have a corrupted default user profile or a corrupt version of ntuser.dat in that profile which is used to configure a new account. I fixed a similar problem by replacing the deafult user profile from the ISO disk of the same version of Windows you are using. See my post 8 at Corrupt NTUSER.DAT file in Default Folder
Also, run sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt.
I though of that so the last few times, I downloaded a fresh ISO from Microsoft but the problem persist.
Yes Done, several times

I think I fixed the problem. I downloaded another ISO from Window's download page and used a program called EZBOOT to install it. I tested it in two computers and so far everything seems to be working. The only issue left is permissions (or lack off), but I had that issue before. I will post that problem later.

Here are the steps I took. Please tell me if I should have done differently.

After creating a second administrater user account with an existing MS account, the new desktop starts with Dock display of short cuts including Edge, Trash etc. Could find no refference to this display.

Have just upgraded my Surface Pro 2 with Win 10 Pro from Win 8.1. Tablet is a domain machine and the upgrade all went fine. The tablet was originally bought using my MS account and in the registry it has entries saying my MS account name (ie: my...
It worked a couple days ago, but I had to do a restore. Now, when I try to modify my account settings (Settings>Accounts>Your Account>Add work or school account) it connects to my work to complete the sign in, but instead of getting a confirmation,...
