I was finally able to mess around with Vista. A client requested I install some software for him. Upon looking around the C: directory I noticed that there was no ALL USERS folder within the C:\Users directory.
In Windows 2000/XP there is a folder located at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users. Why would this be so important to anyone? Well for myself, especially I have a program that creates a folder in the All Users\Desktop folder so that whenever a client creates a new user account the folder they need is always located on each users’ desktop. Now it will have to be manually done. It seems to be a rather tedious task to have to go and create a shortcut in each users’ profile as opposed to just having an ALL USERS folder which accommodates myself by having to only put the folder/shortcut in one location.
I haven’t gotten to play with Vista any more than that so perhaps the feature is there but I have not seen or have no idea how to utilize it properly. I am going to research a little further but I’m fairly disappointed with their new user scheme.
Apparently there is a C:\Users\Public directory in which there is also a C:\Users\Public\Desktop in which that is the equivalent to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users. I’m satisfied. I thought they removed that entirely. I was about to go ape you know what.
