Hi Patrick,Yes, you can get application settings for different applications, if the AppData\Roaming folder is redirected. This may however, conflict with roaming profiles, if used. In this case I would recommend not using roaming profiles.I happened to stumble over this the other day, an ancient user account for which I happened to forget to remove the roaming profile definition. Behavior was strange.Best regards,Peter

  (4.11.x -> 4.15.0 in my case) Very helpful -- thank you.I guess the cons are mostly that if you log on to a new machine you won't get your firefox bookmarks and stuff like that. In my user's case, I think they can live with this, given that they were ready to just live with local logons.On 9/29/21 00:48, miles wrote:> Hi Patrick,> > I had a similar problem 4 years back.
