Power user?

IC

Is it possible to set a user in XP home as a power user? I know by the
normal method only Administrator and Limited are available. I've tried
running "control userpasswords2" to get at the User Accounts dialog, but
when I select "Standard user", I am told the account type does not exist and
power user is not listed the the groups.

Is it possible to add a power user group?

Hi Ian,

No, that's a limitation of the Home version of WinXP.

Nope, that can only be done in the Pro version (or MCE/Server editions).

No - Power user groups are not supported in Home
