windows 10 default profile customization

for windows 10 21h1, how do i do it.. there seems to be several methods, but more often than not, they don't work properly and they're for older builds of windows 10.

I want to be able to log in under audit mode, customize the administrators profile, and do a precise copy of it, so that whenever users log in, they receive that exact profile.

i work for a small tv station and we don't need all the bloatware and security problems that come with windows 10. we don't need xbox, or animations, or maps, or advertising, or any of the junk!

i have ton of pcs that i have to deploy, i need to make this work, and it's aggravating that with every release of windows, we lose more and more of our ability to make it work for us!

Hello @jcCTV-6250,

When the server that stores the mandatory profile is unavailable, such as when the user is not connected to the corporate network, users with mandatory profiles can sign in with the locally cached copy of the mandatory profile, if one exists. Otherwise, the user will be signed in with a temporary profile.

User profiles become mandatory profiles when the administrator renames the NTuser.dat file (the registry hive) of each user's profile in the file system of the profile server from NTuser.dat to NTuser.man. The .man extension causes the user profile to be a read-only profile.

Use a lab or extra computer running a clean installation of Windows 10 to create a default user profile. Do not use a computer that is required for business (that is, a production computer). This process removes all domain accounts from the computer, including user profile folders.

Check out the below link to get to know further on the subject,
