XP and all users

  [DELETED] 05:32 09 Oct 2003

Wonder if I can ask for more advice.
I am the only user of my computer running XP so I find the separate files for me + all users pointless.
Is there an easy way to make all files available to all users as a default.Alternatively is it possible to cancel the requirement for me to have a user account. I tried to ignore it when loading XP but it insisted!

go to run on start menu, type control userpasswords2,then hit ok. selectyour username and uncheck "users must enter a username and password" then hit ok
then go back to run on start menu and type "control userpasswords" select change the way users log on or off.

Thanks Rambus, I took your advice and as a bonus got rid of the annoying welcome screen!

Hello Rambus, I have the same problem but when I tried your solution it locked me out of the computer with a Log On screen asking for an Administrator Password??? What did I do wrong??
