Many times we have mentioned that users in Windows 10 are key to the development of daily activities and that each user can manage the system as they wish. This is based on the permissions that this user has and everything that is configured is achieved thanks to the user profile..

 

 

The user profile is responsible for storing the desktop settings and other details associated with the user account. All these parameters are found in the path C: \ Users \ User. We can delete the user profile without the need to completely delete the user profile which is a definitive process, there are two methods for this which you will learn with TechnoWikis.
