17.8. Profiles

As you've read earlier in this chapter, every document, icon, and preference setting related to your account resides in a single folder: by default, it's the one bearing your name in the Local Disk (C:)→Documents and Settings folder. This folder is technically known as your user profile.

Figure 17-17. Behind the scenes, Windows XP maintains another profile folder, whose subfolders closely parallel those in your own. What you see—the contents of the Start menu, Desktop, Shared Documents folder, Favorites list, Templates folder, and so on—is a combination of what's in your own user profile folder and what's in the All Users folder.
