Open up the registry editor (regedit.exe or regedt32.exe)

In the lefthand tree dbl-click on HKEY_USERS key.
This will expand and you will see a .Default key. This is the default user. Open up this key and you can edit user specific parameters.

If you want to do this globally you will need to set up a global policy using poledit.
