How to create mandatory local profiles in windows 10

In WIndows 7 one could setup a mandatory local desktop for client machines.
I would sign in as domain administrator on the client machine.
Setup all the shortcuts to RDP servers, Website etc.
Allow users local admin control.
Login with another admin account on client.
Copy desired shortcuts and website short cuts to Public desktop from administrator folder.
Copy ntuser.dat from administrator to all users folder.
When you login with user account you have a standardized setup for each new user on that machine.
This worked great for a multi-user machines.  How to accomplish in WIndows 10??

For the record, the method you describe was *NEVER* supported and there are SID specific stamps in ntuser.dat that would often break applications. It may have worked, but it was always hit-or-miss and problematic.

The proper way to create a default profile (which is different than a *mandatory* profile...which is something else altogether, and not what you actually described) then the proper way to do this is to customize it in the image before deployment and then have it copied during sysprep. This method works in every version of windows going back to at least 2000, and continues to work in Windows 10.

Thank you for the solution.
Nevertheless the public desktop still works and it's alright to use it, while it's not ok for ntuser.dat.
