    Syncronize domain accounts customization same as Local account admin


    Hi there,
    I'm new to the forum, so I will try my best to be clear as possible in describing my issues.
    For the past month I've been trying to customize the look of my windows 10 such as folders, start menu, notifications and uninstall of apps in powershell with the local account. Whenever I join a domain all the work I've done with the local account is not there. Meaning, the apps, notifications and start titles are back again.
    Not only that, If I do that work with a domain account and another users login, everything is back like brand new again.
    This is becoming very frustrating, I'm in need of help since it Is for my job.
    Thanks

    Domain account is an independent user account with its own profile. It has basically nothing to do with a local account and its customisations. A domain admin can have set various group policies to be applied when user has joined a domain, but these policies and settings do not apply to local account. Further, another domain account is again an independent user account and has independent profile.

    On a single user PC with one local account and one domain account there are therefore two totally different user accounts and profiles, although they both belong to same user.

    Thank you for your quick reply. Basically, I would have to be familiar with "Group Policy" in order to have domain accounts Iook the same for all users when they login. Any "Group Policy" link training for w10 you recommend.
    Thank you again
