    I'm trying to copy my profile to the default profile on a laptop and I found that the default profile isn't listed as a choice. Anyone know why this is and how to fix it?

    You can't use the "User Accounts" tool to copy setting sover to the Default use since the default user is not really a user.

    What are you trying to accomplish? Copying desktop settings to the default so everyone sees the same desktop?

    well, on our network. when I am setting up a computer to save an image to our ghost server for reimaging systems. I log onto our network and set up my profile exactly the way we want it from desktop to policy and services. Then I log into the machine as admin and then through the system-user profiles-advanced and copy my profile to the defaul profile after having it show hidden files and folders. But, on this laptop, it won't let me do that. Not sure why.
