    admin account profile

    i have gotten my user account set up just the way i want, and now i would like to have an admin account available on my login screen (in addition to my user account) that has same basic settings (all the stuff the way i want it) as my user account.

    i have found that if i activate the hidden admin account via command prompt, then restart my comp, the admin account is available at login. is there a way to grab my user basics with that account OR is there some other way to accomplish my goal ?

    i have done a lot of reading acout default profile, copyprofile, etc....................isn't there a simple way to do this ????

    There is no supported way to copy a user profile to another user, and I don't think there is even third party software to do it either. Also, it is a very bad idea to leave the built-in admin account enabled. You should create another local user account and then change that account to administrator.
