Keyboard on other users accounts

Question: Keyboard on other users accounts

I cannot seem to change it for my other user accounts. Mine is fine but the others have @ symbol above the 2 whilst I need it near enter. The language settings are UK and override for windows display language says 'use language list'. I change it to UK and save but it never sticks. Please help. It's not really straightforward on Windows 10

Preferred Solution: Keyboard on other users accounts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Could it because it's a child account I cannot change it?

Hi
I have two accounts on my laptop: Bryan as admin and James as my local account which I use for my daily workings.
All my work is save to a different partition on the hard drive.

I now notice that if I go to C:\users, I have my admin account but there are two other user accounts James and James.lenovo15.

Originally I found James and James-2 user accounts so I moved the James-2 folders and files to my work partition (just so I didn't lose the info before deleting it). When I signed in again, I could only sign in as a "guest" using the James-2 password.

I have now spent a coupe of days deleting the user account under the User Accounts setting. Then deleting the James account in the only place it appears (C:\Users); and creating a new Local User account in the user accounts (using Bryan admin). However, I find that in C drive I still have two James users - James and James.lenovo15.

I think that when I just deleted the James account in C:\Users it must have left some residual elements somewhere and it recreated itself and the new local account which I names simply James was forced to add to the name .Lenovo15 to prevent conflicts.

Although I doesn't affect the running of the computer, having both users takes up considerable space. James user 4.7 gbs while the new James.lenovo15 has 1.7 gb.

Has anyone any idea how to resolve the matter?

I have created a second Administrator user account without password but gave it a different name. Now I have 2 Administrator user accounts named ?Greyvaio? which is the original one and the new one named ?MyVaio?.The computer is laptop Vaio with XP professional.When I start the computer it opens with latest user account I created - the one named ?MyVaio?.The ussue now is that I have no option to switch between the two users. To do this switching, the Help advise is to Click Start, Click Log Off and Click Switch User.The problem is that when I click Start and Log Off there is no option for switching users (that green square with 2 arrows inside does not appear at all).The only option computer displays is to log off.Then I?ve tried different approach - from User Accounts panel clicked on ?Change the way users log on/off in? order to switch to Welcome screen from which I can select with which account to login.No luck - here popped up this message :?Client services for network has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching.

HI All

I have a question about installing a program in the administrator account and then using the program in the user account. The user is set as a power user and I am having some trouble getting the program to run properly. It runs fine when I am logged in as an administrator. Been doing some reading but not finding a solution to my problem. Would giving the user account admin rights, installing the program and changing the user back to power user make any difference?

Thanks, Reddoug

Answer:A question about users accounts.

when you install the program ,were you giving an option for it to be used by all users or just admin /you

did you google the problem ,some google results look promising .i only look at the second one .

Test if this is a local rights issue by temporarily granting your wife's account administrator rights, then testing again. If it works fine on the first test, then remove the rights and see if it happens again.

Today I tried to add an account to my Windows 10 computer (Version 1607 Build 14393.321). Not something I do very often so I Googled it. When I select Settings - Accounts, I do not see the option for "Family and other users" like the screen image below. This image is not from my machine - it's from a site that shows how to add an account.

What I see is shown in the screen shown below. If I click on the big + box for "Add someone else to this PC:, I do not get a screen that says "Add a child or an adult?" and then "Lets create an account".

When I click on "Other People" and then the PLUS box for "Add someone else to this PC" it takes me to the inset box in the 2nd screenshot below. From there, I can select Users, then from the Action option, New User, then fill in the boxes. I have no idea why what happens on my PC is totally different than the several web sites I found that take you through this process. Any ideas are appreciated.

Answer:Family & Other Users does not appear in Settings - Accounts

There are other threads on this but none have provided a resolution to my problem. Running the users check indicates the administrator account exists. However, I cannot select any users except my standard windows user on boot-up, nor can I switch users from the start center, as there are no other users to select at the top right of the start center - i.e., the pix and user name do not contain other user names. The power button on settings doesn't either. When checking the task manager, there is only my own windows user name listed, so no other user to switch to. I installed various reg, bat and vbs files available for downloading on this web site without success.

I hope that there is a setting that has changed - but looking at secpol and gpedit nothing jumps out at me.

Nothing seems to correct the problem. Anyone?

Answer:Admin Accounts saving on other users on Vista Ultimate

You are going to need to save it to a shared folder and then log out and into the other account, then you can move or copy the file from the shared folder to the current users Documents folder.

By the way, you are NOT "The Administrator" but a member of the Admin group.

I would check to see if you are using redirected folders on the server for the users in question. I have seen problems because of the different folder structure for the "?sers" folder in xp versus win 7.

Answer:How to Not allow Guest users to see programs and files on other (admisistor) accounts

I have 8x users and I successfully prevent some of them to see the same stuff as the main user/admin can, and did it roughly as follows:

Chose the directory you don't want them to see, then rightclick and chose properties or found your way to security. The trick is to add the name of the user in security to that directory, and then block it ....Deny Access...You can now further hide that directory, and the user will normally not see it, but if he view it, he will get message=Access Denied.

The Guest:I would treat the Guest in similar way.

Hi there

seem to have found a SHOWSTOPPER on build 10158 -- If I try and add an account (or a user) I get a quick flash on the screen and then it disappears and I'm still in the settings menu.

The PC has always had just a LOCAL account.

There's obviously something wrong if I can't add users .

I think that as it's a VM I'll ditch it and go back to build 10130 on a REAL machine and try the update again. Then I'll create a NEW VM hopefully with build 10159.

My office has requested a simple IM service for interoffice communications, and i have installed openfire on a Centos 5.5 server and configured clients with pidgin, and it works great.

however i noticed several staff members adding accounts for MSN and AIM to their pidgin as well, which does not go over well with management.

while installing pidgin there were check boxes where i unselected all the IMs thinking it would prevent them from being added but i was wrong.

does anybody have any experience with this? perhaps something i can do to disable the adding of new accounts in pidgin, or another IM client that only supports xmpp/jabber

Its a great office resource and i would hate to have to scrap it because i cant prevent the staff from chatting with their friends at work.

thanks so much
 

Answer:Pidgin/openfire for office users, how to block adding of other IM accounts

the im client we use is called neos, for our jabber server

doesn't seem the creators of the app are around anymore... can't hit their domain.

http://neos.en.softonic.com/

However, Neos is no walled garden. It allows you to gather all your contact lists from different messaging networks (ICQ, MSN, Yahoo and Jabber) into a single window -but that depends exclusively on the plug-ins you install on the server, so everything remains under the Administrator's control. That means you can use it just as an internal communication tool and add support for other networks as it is needed.Click to expand...

Hi ALLI'm about to go OS for a month and have a house sitter coming to stay who will feed the fish and email me from my own computer with updates... I've set her up a password protected user account in XP and passworded my own acount, but I want to make all my own files and folders inaccesible to her... currently her account can view everything in my C and D drives, this no good! I'll need to spend a day burning and saving emails, photo's, chat conversations etc that I'm not keen for her to stumble across... is there an easier way to make all my folders unavailable in her account? I've had a good look around Windows XP with not much luck...thanks... !

People:

My Win7 Pro 64-bit machine has garbled names for accounts, users, folders, and user profiles.

I have looked into my copy of "Windows 7 Inside and Out", by Bott, et al, but can't dope out what to do. I'd like to keep the log-on screen names and conform other names to them.

In this forum's tutorials I found #147545, "Windows 7: User Profile Folder - Change User Account Folder Name" but it describes a problem much less messier than mine, so I am asking for help.

Obviously, a man who can make such a hash of things needs a problem-specific, step-by-step fix. Please, someone?

With ATA, it is licensed per user. Is that the number of people in our company? or is that also the number of user accounts that were created to run services. For example, I have an user account in Active Directory that is used by our backup software to
access servers. Do I need to license that user account in ATA?

Right, for a start off I don't think I explained myself very well in the title - so I will have another go here.

I have a table of users that I have created (imported from a spreadsheet) to the tune of about 25000 users.

I have a list of calls from the IT Service Desk - however they have not linked the users active directory account into the call, just the callers surname and forename(s).

I want to link all the users calls to the possible users in the database in a separate table.

The tables I have are laid out as follows:

Users Table:

Code:
UserID - Autonumber [b]PK[/b]
User Active Directory Name - text [i](Actually their email address)[/i]
IT Calls:

Code:
Callid - number [i]Unique[/i] [b]PK[/b]
FirstName - text
Surname - text
Call Details - text
Linking Table:

Code:
UniqueID - Autonumber
UserID - number [b]FK[/b]
Callid - number [b]FK[/b]
PossibleDuplicate - Yes/No
Basically I want to write some sort of script that will go through my IT Calls table and query the users, at the moment I am doing it by hand using the query:

Code:
Like "*" & [Enter Name] & "*"
And I am having to enter users names like this, joe*bloggs (as some users Active Directory accounts have middle initials and some don't.)

I want all the users that return more than one result to tick the Possible Duplicate box so I can go through and look at these manually later.

Does that make sense? Any ideas on how I would go about writing a script for this??... Read more

Hi,  I manage several labs, whereby currently machines are in a workgroup, and users use a shared account to log in and and attach to a profile that is running tests.  We want to up the security, bring these lab machines into a domain structure, and
enforce each user to log in as themselves, but they need to all connect to the same desktop process which is running the test suite. Is this possible, and how do we go about it? We are using Windows 7 and Windows 10

On XP Pro/SP2, on only one account (mine), I cannot get the Repeat Rate or Repeat Delay settings to stay. I can change them in Control Panel, but rebooting always causes these values to change back to a weird setting, so I always have to correct them after a reboot. (If I don't correct them, I get accidentally repeated characters because the Repeat Delay is so short.) The other accounts work OK. How can I fix this? This condition was not there with the initial upgrade from W98 to XP; it seems to have started some time after installing SP2. HELP!

This problem is driving me crazy. I am running a laptop with a French keyboard layout, with Windows set on British English. For my admin account this works fine - there is an English and French input method available in the language settings in Control Panel (and I can even switch to an English keyboard layout, if I want, with the language settings 'button' in the righthand side of the task bar).
I would like to set up a user account for my son, which I have done, but it opens up with an English keyboard layout. I go into the language settings, but only the English keyboard is available as an input method. I add the French keyboard, but I cannot switch to this keyboard - there is no language button in the task bar and windows+space doesn't do anything. I've even tried deleting the English keyboard layout to leave just the French. The language settings now show only the French keyboard, but Windows still stubbornly insists on staying with the English layout! What do I have to do to get the User Account to work with the French keyboard?

The keyboard only works in one of the accounts

In the other accounts you hear a clicking noise but nothing comes up on the screen

I tried creating a new account but same problem

Its a regular PS\2 keyboard and yes I have tried changing it.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Keyboard will not work in certain user accounts but is fine in others

C'mon people you're letting me down here, this is the second incident in a row that I've managed to figure out before anyone posted any kind of a reply. I know the answer is obvious to those that know it but when someone else is asking for help its nice to give some.

Anyway, problem was caused by some dumbass accessability option. There was a small icon on the taskbar (that I didnt spot until after I had resolved the problem) that looked like a small stopwatch. So if you se this and cant type, go to accessability options and make sure tha everything is unchecked.

My thanks to the Ubuntu user who had a similar problem, posted it on a Linux site, and especially to the people that answered hiscry for help. Reading this is what got me loking at the accessibility options in XP.

This bug has been present in 8 and it is still there in 8.1.

If the computer has non-interactive user accounts (i.e. accounts listed under "Deny logon locally" in Local Security Policy), these accounts are visible in the "Sign Out/Lock" menu of every regular interactive user on that machine ("regular" in this case means a member of "Users" group, not "Administrators" group).

Interactive accounts with administrative privileges do not suffer from this problem: their "Sign Out/Lock" menu only lists interactive users, as it should be.

So, is there any workaround for this issue? Or is there an alternative way to create non-interactive accounts (for network access) so that they will not appear in "Sign Out/Lock" menu of regular users?

Answer:Restricted users can "see" non-interactive accounts

Anyone else here use an external keyboard and think it benefits greatly?

I find over long periods of time on my lappie, that I get soar with looking down too low, and typing and being on a laptop for 12hours a day is not the most comfortable. So I got an external keyboard (BenQ X120) read good reviews on it how it has laptop keys. It doesnt quite, but its close.

Wise to use ext keyboard on a laptop, keep the laptop keyboard for when Im out and cover it up with plastic when not used, so the crap doesnt get the keys to stick.

Hi there, hopefully this is a quick, easy-to-solve question:

Recently, out of the blue, my logitech g15 keyboard and g5 mouse will stop working any time someone switches user profiles on my computer (running XP 32bit, for the record).

I have Windows XP HOME SP2 on Intel Celeron 667 MHz and 192MB RAM. I know it doesn't sound like much so I'm always trying to read forums and tweak my settings. But this time, it ended up worse.

1. It takes longer to start up,
2. I don't see any accounts (not even admin) in Control Panel - User accounts
3. I can access a directory and open files but I can't cut or copy and paste them into another folder.
4. In services.msc, most of the programs under Local with automatic setting don't start and cannot be started. I can't even see the programs under extended.
5. I have a home network but I can't access any of my other computers.

Hello

I have been chasing up an answer to this problem for a couple of weeks now and have found a number of people with same symptoms but no answer which works.

When I go to the User Accouns page the dialog box for the "Choose the Account you would like to change" is blank.

I am an administrator and there are 2 accounts on my notebook - windows 7 professional.

I can view the accounts through the run command, but would like to know why the dialog is empty and what the fix is for this.

I have done a scan for errors - none found.

Done a complete reinstall - Accounts still not visible.

Looking on a variety of forums, this appears to have been happening to XP and Vista prior to Windows 7.

However none of the fixes for XP or Vista work (Some don't even apply).

Granted... It's for XP but I can't seem to find the Win7 version.

Several dialog boxes are blank

EDIT: Here's a fix for the "Windows Features" blank dialog. I figure it might tell you what your problem is as well.

Hi all

I can't find any mention of my problem on this or any other forum. Or at least I don't think I can... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my set-up:
Linksys DSL modem, connected to an Apple Airport Extreme wireless router. The modem is configured to be the DHCP server, the Airport is set to bridge mode. I have a new Compaq Presario desktop running Vista Home Basic with a Belkin wireless-G USB dongle. All of this discussion is about wireless, btw - I don't have a long enough CAT-5 cable to connect the Airport and PC.

I have 5 users set up on the PC - 1 true, unlocked administrator account and 4 standard users. When I boot up and connect as any of the 4 standard users they automatically detect and connect to the Airport, and receive IP addresses.

But when I change user to be the administrator the connection drops after a few seconds. The Airport network is visible to Vista, because it is in the list of available networks. But if I try to connect to it it fails, and the Vista diagnostic tool tells me it has been unable to connect 'for unknown reason'. One of the standard users used to have admin rights, and that account had exactly the same problem. If I log in from a boot-up as the administrator I also cannot connect to the network.

If the administrator account has been used and logged out the other users cannot connect to the Airport. I have to re-boot before they can connect again.

I also have a MacBook and a Nokia N95, bo... Read more

I just bought my 15 year old son a laptop with Windows 8. I was able to set up my Admin account and his "standard" account, and put a time curfew and limits on his account, but when I logged in as him, I saw that he would be able to create another account which would pretty much defeat the whole time limit thing! Is there a way to prevent all but admin accounts to be able to create more accounts?? I'm pretty technically savvy but this new W8 is not as easy to navigate as the previous versions!! (I wouldn't mind a "classic view" either, if that exists!)

Answer:prevent all but admin accounts to create more accounts?

Hello cbird, and welcome to Eight Forums.

By default, standard users are not able to create new accounts or do anything that effects anything other than just their user account.

The only way a standard account is able to create a new account is if that standard user entered the administrator's password when prompted by UAC when trying to do so through the Control Panel (icon view) -> User Accounts -> Manage Accounts.

Hello , I recently changed my username in win-7, beside changing it in the "User account" panel, I also changed the user profile folder and registry entry for that, the only thing I could not change is the value in "Net users"...

The problem that I have with that is wen trying to login remotely with RDP I still need to use the old username.
I know I can add a new user but can I change the exiting entry instead? what is it exactly? what's the difference between "Net users" and "User accounts" ?

Thank you.
 

Answer:"User accounts" and "Net users"

Hi, when you first install windows it cretes a user who is registered owner , you need to change this to your new registered owner or it will crop up all over the place. Open regedit do the appropriate backup first and navigate to this key:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion in the right pane locate the entry for registered owner(may also have registered organisation populated as well) and right click select modify, type your new user name in the value data box.

For net user have a look through this:-

Our genealogy club has a room with a few PCs that members may use to access online databases the club pays for. With Windows 7, members use a flash drive for data transfer between their home PC and a club PC.

If a member had a Microsoft account and could log in to a club PC with that account, OneDrive could be used instead of the (old-fashioned, clunky) flash drive.

But from what I can tell, the Windows 10 club PC would have to have an account already set up, that was connected to the Microsoft account. We'd have to define an account on each PC for each member who wanted to use OneDrive. That doesn't sound like a good idea after all.

Is there any way to use different Microsoft accounts from the same PC user account?

Answer:User accounts and Microsoft accounts

Yep. Settings, then Accounts, then click on Sign in with a local account instead. That will remove the existing MS login and convert the account to use a local login. Then new person logs in on the local PC account, then goes to Settings, then Accounts, then clicks on something like Sign in a with a Microsoft account instead and converts the local account back to Microsoft login. Then before they sign out, they go back and convert it back to a local account.

You only asked if there was a way - not a practical way.

They can always just use the OneDrive website from Firefox or Edge or Internet Explorer to log into their personal OneDrive cloud. Personally, if it were me, I would rather just use a flash drive.

Hi there

Using SIMPLE / standard File sharing connections and all computers in the LAN on the same network name e.g WORKGROUP.

confusion seems rife over what user names to use when connecting to SHARES TO or FROM a machine logged on with an MS account from a machine logged on using a LOCAL account.

Assume Ms account machine is GREYFOX, Local account machine is BLACKDOG

Easy way

1) Logged on with LOCAL account - connect to shares on Ms account machine

Very important -- look in the USERS directory on the Ms account machine on the "C" drive -- say it's FRED. This could be different to the Login name you see on the login screen (the bit before the @ in the email address shown on the login screen)

so to login to the Ms account shares

Username : Fred
Password : Your password for your Ms account

2) Logged on with MS account connect to shares on Local machine

Username : BLACKDOG\FRED
Password : Fred's password on the local machine

Cheers
jimbo

Hey Guys,

If you are using Kaspersky on Windows XP, and your Blue Shift is not working, I may have a solution for you. If you go into Kapersky, go to My Security Zone and then application activity. Go to Category and then click all. Scroll down until you find everything to do with Blue Shift ( Half Life Launcher, installation etc). Right click on each of these and change the status to Trusted. The game should work now. I hope this helps I've had the problem for a while and it was driving me nuts. I'd also like to thank the user "fragger" for giving me the idea to look at Kaspersky. If your reading this, hope it helps you out buddy.

hi guys,

really need some help on this one cause i cant seem to get how something that sounds so simple is so hard to do.


i got a client with a workstation that has a local user account on it.
they also have a domain which he has another account on there.

so i have local account joe1 and domain account joe2. now i need to get joe 1 to combind and merge outlook and my docs with joe2. and then get joe2 to stay on the server so that it remains a account that can be accesses on any computer on the domain network. with this in mind the user profile needs to be saved on the server and the profile can be copied to the computer that his sitting at when he loggs on.


anyway i can figure out how to move the local (joe1) account to the server (joe2)i have tried a command moveuser but i keep getting a parameter error on there (error 87) .

i typed it like this

moveuser joe1 (company doamin)\joe2 /c:\\(client machine)

please can anyone help me one this

Can anyone help me regain Security Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder which I lost while looking at the access rights. I mistakenly closed the box while playing with the access rights and lost any access to the file.
I pulled the access rights to the file using icacls they are below.

application data
D:PAI(D;OICI;FA;;;WD)(A;;0x1200a9;;;WD)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)S:AI

I am thinking I can change the information in the file and restore it. Not sure exactly what to change?

I was also thinking I could pull the info from another computer running with the same operating system and reapply them to this file? Would this work?

I looked at Previous Versions of the upper level folder. Can I restore a previous version of this whole folder? Will it restore the Application Data folder with the prior permissions?

Answer:Lost Access Permissions to C:\Users\All Users\Application Data Folder

Are you asking about the Application Data or Appdata folder?

If Application Data, this is not a real folder but a junction used to allow interface with legacy programs. No access is necessary since it is pointing to the Appdata folder.

User 1 logs in and works does whatever... Doesn't log out but screensaver goes back to user screen. 
 
User 2 logs in (switching users - not logging out user 1) and gets to work. 
 
Sometime later (ie. not right away) and not at a prescribed time, the network stops working.  
 
I try to disable / enable the network adapter and the machine freezes.   Reboot fixes problem.
 
If user 1 or user 2 is the only one logged in then never a problem.
 
Anyone heard of this? 
Thanks for any help!
 

Answer:Multiple Windows 7 Users-Switch between Users-network stops working

When switching users, it's always a good idea to have User 1 close out any applications and documents they have open and then log out before User 2 logs in. It sounds like you have fast user switching enabled, but I'm not aware of that causing any network issues -- unless User 1 was doing something that required a network connect.
 
Check the Event Viewer for error logs from the time it froze when you tried to disable and enable the network adapter. Post the event ID and description here if you need help diagnosing the issue from the log files. Perhaps another fix is to disable fast user switching, so that users are always forced to log out before someone else can log in.

How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

All of my computers are wired... but, I would like to give my retired neighbor (he's 64 years old) wireless access. But, I don't want him or anyone else access to my shared files b/w desktop/laptop. So, should I put it on a different subnet? Do I need a 2nd router? Right now, I have the BEFSR41 with a WAP11 AP on 192.168.1.245 with the router on 192.168.1.1 (both are 255.255.255.0 subnet).

Thanks!
 

Answer:How can I setup 2 networks so that my wireless users can't access wired users?

I would setup a DMZ, you can do this by using two physical routers or something like smooth wall with multiple nics. If I were you I would setup smooth wall on a crap old box and install 3 network cards into the old computer. Hooking your cable modem to one of the network cards in the smoothwall box will be like pluggin in your cable modem to the wan port on the back of your router. I would plug your wireless router into to the next nic on your smooth wall box. If your neighbor is the only one using the wireless do the following. Enable WEP, don't broadcast your ssid, filter by mac address, and limit the total number of connections to 1. That should keep your wireless rather secure. With the final network card in the smooth wall box attach either a standard switch or even another router. Smooth wall has built in DHCP support and it will allow you to set a range of ips.Hard wire all your home computer to the switch and your in business.
