profiles in XP?

Thanks

Hi,

It's not the same with every program. Different programs have different =
registry settings. Also, this cannot be done without a third-party =
utility like:

Set the default browser for your user profile:=20

Set the default email client on a per-user basis
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/defaultmail.htm

Per User Display Settings:=20
