Exercise 1 - Manage User Profiles

User profiles define the desktop settings and application preferences that are created when a user initially signs-in to a Windows computer. On subsequent sign-ins, a user can customize his profile by adding program shortcuts, populate a folder such as Documents with Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and other file types. Downloads folder is the default location for files downloaded from the Internet. Likewise, Videos, Music folders contain media that were either created or downloaded by the user from different sources. For complete list of folders and items in a user profile, you can look up C:\Users where each user is allotted a folder that hosts the user profile settings.

By default, a user profile is local, meaning it is saved on the computer assigned to the user. With a few configuration changes a local profile can be converted to a roaming type which will follow the user to other Windows 10 domain-joined workstations.
