    I am looking for an information source that would give me information about managing User accounts with Windows 200 Pro.

    Thanks

    The link was wonderful and it did contain other links that were also great.

    What, specifically, I am looking for is, when you install Windows 2000, fresh, you get an Administrator account. Now this is fine, but how can you later on make a user account that will see all the stuff that you have done under the Administrator account?

    Is making the new account a member of the Administrator group enough for that?

    What if you want user accounts, so that not everyone will have the power to muck thing up for example, but yet be able to work with all the software that you installed under the Administrator's account?

    <font color=blue>and many many other... </font color=blue> Don't keep us in suspense, if they are as good as the first one, please do tell.

    Thanks again.

    Wassim,
    Why don't you start here: Maintain Security with Windows 2000 ? That should give you links to lots of resources.

    Re: Information Source

    "See all of the stuff..." What stuff? The Administrator account has its own desktop and personal settings, but software that you've installed there is typically available to all users. Some things are cross-account, some are not.

    In general practice it's not wise to make all users administrators unless they have a specific need for the privileges it brings.

    Re: Information Source

    Some of the "stuff" might be program menu shortcuts. You could try
    <UL><LI>log in as Administrator
    <LI>click on the Start button and choose "Explore All Users"
    <LI>click on the Start button again and choose "Explore"
    <LI>move shortcuts that you want everyone to see from the Administrator programs menu to the All Users programs menu[/list]StuartR
