User Profiles

User profiles contain all the information that the computer needs to personalize your system's look and feel. Your user profile contains your desktop, wallpaper, and shortcut icons. The profile also contains your network settings, network printer definitions, and your personal file folders. Windows 2000 contains four types of user profiles: the default user profile, local user profiles, roaming user profiles, and mandatory profiles.

A default user profile is a profile that is assigned to a user the first time he or she logs in to a computer. When the user logs in for the first time, he or she receives the settings specified in the default user profile. When the user logs off, the default profile is written to a local user profile, including any changes the user made during his or her first session. Because of this process, you can make it a little less painful for users to set up shop on your PC by logging in as a new user and making some general changes.
