Windows 10 and network administrator desktop permissions

One feature we like to use, for ease of access, are 3 desktop icons, Computer, Network and Control Panel. In Windows 10, as a local user or network users, you can add the icons simply by opening Settings, Personalization, Themes and Desktop icon settings. The tick the box next to the Desktop icons you like. As a network administrator, this is not an option. So the easiest work around for the network admin, is to click Start and in search box add, “Show or hide common icons on the desktop” then click “Show or hide common icons on the desktop”. You can then choose the desktop icons you like to use.

Setting up a new QuickBooks-POS-12 installation for a client today and learned that when Intuit means their POS application is peer-to-peer network ready, they truly mean it, peer-to-peer NOT client-server. Make note, network admins, the first machine you install QBPOS on, which will be a desktop(most likely) WILL be the Server/Host, no if and buts, nor changing it, unless you backup move, uninstall and install at another desktop. It is not like the network version of QuickBooks, where you can store the DB(database) file only, on a server and share it from there.

QBPOS is hardcoded and you cannot change the default location of the POS DB.
