View Full Version : XP Newbie needing help

31-10-2005, 01:41 PM
Hi Folks!

Just made the move from ME to XP and I'm scratching my head a bit (Help and Support is no help at all ...).

Some software applications I load are available across all four users, some aren't.

How do I ensure that all software I load is available in all user profiles? And is there a way to make software already loaded available to all four users?

Any help appreciated.

depends on the program. some programs ask you at install if you want it advailable for all users or just the current one.

A lot of installers will actually ask you whether you want to install it for all users or just the current user.

Otherwise, try just putting the shortcuts in the appropriate area under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu

Right click on the shortcut to the program on the start menu, then click properties to allow sharing with other users
