Desktops for each person. Win 98SE.

  tolls-pete 14:17 03 Mar 03

I've set up a different desktop for each person in my family. All is fine except for the icons. My understanding is that it should be possible to have different icons for each family member. Eg I don't want the kids games icons on my desktop. However, the icons on all the desktops are the same and when I delete one from one desktop it disappears from all.

Can anybody advise?

You have to enable Windows for multiple users, so that each user types their name and password (leave blank for young kids) to log on. When you do this you also have to specify whether each user has their own My Documents folder and Start Menu.

Sorry if this is too obvious, but I think that is all you need to do. Then you should be able to modify the settings for each user.

Thanks Pesala. I hadn't got all the options ticked.
