Hello experts - If I have a user profile configured on a Windows 10 Pro machine and I want all of the settings to apply to everyone who signs in, what is the way to accomplish this?

I don't think so. That option was available in XP and died there.

Most of the Microsoft imaging methods leave it to the user to set up their profile.

See what others say.

Yeah, I remember just copying the profile contents to the default user account which worked.  The Copy To button is still there but it's grayed out on the profile I created so I can't copy it to the default profile.

That facility has been removed which is why it does not work.

Create a Folder with all the Files and Folders you want everyone to have then copy it to the Default Profile.

Example:

c:\Users-Default , Contains everything you want all users to have.

copy "C:\Users-Default\*.*" "C:\Users\Default\
