    Creating A Default User Profile (Windows XP)

    I'm just wondering how to set a default user profile on a machine running Windows XP to always create new profiles with the Windows Classic theme and feel? <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    I need to do this since the user's are familiar with Windows 2000 Workstation and not XP and I seem to find this option easier to implement since it uses the added features of Windows XP but with WIndows 2000 functionality

    Can anyone help with this situation? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Re: Creating A Default User Profile (Windows XP)

    I do NOT think that you will be able to create a default "Windows Classic theme and feel". It has been this way from the start of the beta testing. Remember that this is one of the marketing hype that are being used.

    Also "I need to do this since the users are familiar with Windows 2000 Workstation and not XP".
    Let the users decide which way they want things. Some may prefer the new look. But if you need to have all of them this way, just give them instructions on the how to change the one setting in properties of the "Start" menu, and "Folder Options" each. Let them (the users) go from their, they may be smarter than you think.
