Where has the default user gone?
I want to create a desktop icon that appears on the desktop of everyone who
logs onto that Vista PC. In XP, you could use default user desktop and place
an icon there. I can't find how to do this in Vista. Help...

The new location in Vista:

C:\Users\Public\Desktop is the location for All Users. Any shortcut icon in
this folder will appear on every users desktop.

C:\Users\user name\Desktop is the location for each individual user. Any
shortcut icon in this folder will only appear on that invidual users
desktop.

Re: Where has the default user gone?
Ronnie, thanks very much for the quick response. That has done the trick. On
my Dell the desktop folder was hidden by default, but I found it and now can
use it.

Once again, many thanks.
