The gist: I'd love to know if there is a way to setup a local user profile and then use it as a template to spawn dozens of other user accounts.
The long version: We have a Surface Pro 3 running windows 8.1 and my boss wants me to make it so that every user can use the device when needed with a few odd exceptions:
1) User profiles need to be "cleaned" after the user is done using the machine
2) I'm not allowed to join the machine to our domain to use their normal accounts
We only have 20 users, so manual steps are acceptable to a point.
For item number 1, I'm thinking of simply renaming ntuser.dat to ntuser.man after the profiles are configured, but if there is a better way to handle this I'd love to hear it.
For item number 2, manually creating 20 accounts by hand is feasible, but the thought of doing the first login with the accounts to allow Win 8.1 to install apps/setup profiles and then tweaking each profile to get rid of the clutter makes my face hurt. Is there any way to setup one account and use it like a template to spawn the others?
