After creating the shared user account, you can manually configure specific settings and restrictions for the associated shared user profile. You can customize the shared user profile and create an environment for users of the shared user profile.

As a Windows SteadyState administrator, you can choose a default restriction level of High, Medium, or Low that automatically applies the recommended settings to the user account you select. You can also choose Custom restrictions and set restrictions that are customized to each shared user account that you create in Windows SteadyState.

You can create as many shared user accounts as you require on the shared computer and customize restrictions for each user account in Windows SteadyState. To simplify the number of user accounts you have to create for a public use environment, you can create one account for each level of user that might use the computer, and then apply specific restrictions to each account. For example, you might want to create a user account for each of the following classifications of users:

In this example, you can set the Low restrictions option on the Adult user account because they are more technically advanced or require access to system resources. You can set the Medium restrictions option on the Teen user account to limit their access to system settings while still allowing access to computer resources. The Child user account can have the restrictions option set on High restrictions for maximum protection of the shared computer system files and limited access to external resources.
