The profile tab of the user properties window allows you to configure user profile, logon scripts and home folder details for the user object. It is very useful when you have to allow your user access the same environment and data irrespective of the machine he logs in from.User Profile: A user profile carries environment settings, documents, music and other data that are specific to the user, and the profile is stored in the server and can be accessed by the user from anywhere.Logon scripts: Using these scripts you can configure what tasks will be executed when the user logs on. Using logon scripts you can perform various tasks such as Mapping network drives, Installing and setting a user’s default printer, updating virus signatures, updating software etc.Home folder: Home folders are similar to profiles as the data in it can be accessed from anywhere, the difference is that they don’t carry the working environment or customizations instead they are just shares that can be accessed from anywhere. It is usually used when there is no enough disk space available on the local machine.
