Personal Setting

All study terminals in our lab use roaming profile for every user, this enables users to keep their profile settings the same no matter which computer they login in our lab.

What is Roaming user profile

A roaming user profile is a concept in the Microsoft Windows NT family of operating systems that allows users with a computer joined to a Windows Server domain to log on to any computer on the same network and access their documents and have a consistent desktop experience, such as applications remembering toolbar positions and preferences, or desktop appearance.[1]

Advantages

  • Automatic resource availability. A user's unique profile is automatically available when he or she logs on to any computer on the network. Users do not need to create a profile on each computer they use on a network.
  • Simplified computer replacement and backup. When a user's computer must be replaced, it can be replaced easily because all of the user's profile information is maintained separately on the network, independent of an individual computer. When the user logs on to the new computer for the first time, the server copy of the user's profile is copied to the new computer.[2]
