Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Hi, I'll be happy to help - can you let me know if this is a standalone Apple system or is it connected to any servers (for example, a Windows domain).
Are the 50 users grouped in any way or just unique individuals
Let me know and I'll be able to advise further
Hi Steve, standalone on a Mac Pro. Not Grouped. Unique individuals.
Thanks - will work on a few solutions
There may be a few ways to approach this
Is there one account currently which is configured the way you want it to be for the other 49 accounts?
or however many other accounts there are?
If so, once you have an account which is configured as you need the others you can do this for the dock
Open /Users -> your_user -> Library -> Preferences
find this file
and copy it to the desktop
then move it to a shared folder where any user can access it
you then need to copy it to each of the different users, Library/Preferences folder
and amend the permissions so that each user is the owner of the respective file
Then when you login as each user their dock should display the same as the original user
have tried it here and works well
if that works correctly for you on the dock then you can do the same procedure for the other preference files which are in the User/Library/Preference folder
so long as the ownership permission is amended each time that should allow you to get to where you need to be
Let me know
