    Win 8.1 Visual Effects


    I have a simple setup on Win 8.1 by where I am administrator and my daughter has a local / standard account. When I try and change the Visual Effects in the System - Performance area of Control Panel, in her profile to "Custom" the changes appear to happen but don't remain. The same custom changes I make to my own administrator account remain intact. Perhaps this is nothing to do with administrator rights - just a hunch. Any help or advice much appreciated.
