Copy user's profile to other in Win XP

By choy.waigiat ·
Is it possible to copy another user's profile to my profile in the same PC? Example: User A & User B are using the same PC, Is it possible to copy the exact profile of User A to User B?

thanks and regards,

You have to be logged in as a third user, belonging to the local Administrators group.

Do the copy from Control Panel - System - Advanced - User Profiles - Settings. Select the source profile and click Copy To.

Select the directory you want to copy the profile to. Click 'Permitted to use' - Change and enter the username who is going to use the profile.

When the copy is completed, you will need to change the name of the 'My Documents' directory in the new profile folder to match the username. There may be also other things that need adjustment.
