I do believe If you move the shortcuts from C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs everybody will have the same Start Menu Tiles. You'd have to play around with it.
    Other than that I think you'd have to use the WAIK to create a default profile.
    I don't know the same things you don't know.

    I just bought and installed Win7 in the past month or so. I'm in no hurry to upgrade again. I might download it and burn it to a DVD for when I am ready for an updrade.



    Offtopic: In reffering to that new user "Shaved Ape", I bet that an ape standing around bald, fleshtoned and all wrinkly, eating a banana is very creepy looking.

    On the Windows 8 forum I frequent, user experience and opinion on Windows 8 is very polarized. Most either hate it and wouldn't use it even if it was free, or consider it the best Windows OS ever and Metro to be the best thing since sliced bread. The terms haters and fan boys seem to come up often when Metro is discussed. To me it feels like an OS in transition from your traditional mouse keyboard input to touch input. It doesn't do either very well and can't make up its mind which one you should use. Metro is either not there when I do want it, or in my face when I don't want it.

    Possibly, but nothing I am responsible for.
