Hello, I'm trying to setup the default user profile in Windows 10, so that when a new user logins into a particular PC, default apps are already setup, apps pinned to the task bar, etc.  
Anybody know how to set this up in Windows 10 successfully?

DefProf

DefProf updates the Default Windows User Profile with the documents and settings from another user profile that you specify. You can use DefProf on Windows 7 where the "Copy To" button is greyed out in the "User Profiles" dialog box. For more details click here.
Installation

Just copy DefProf onto your executable path, and type "defprof". You must have administrative privileges.
Usage

Usage: defprof profile_folder_name
 
Let’s say you use a ‘setup’ user account to create a user profile that you want everyone logging onto a machine to inherit. When you logon as setup, Windows creates a C:\Users\setup profile folder. To make ‘setup’ the default profile, you just type defprof setup at a command prompt.
 
DefProf 1.10 adds support for Windows 10.
