    Domain user accounts after installing and loading programs


    Hi all,

    I hope this makes sense as I have never had a firm understanding of creating user accounts especially those added to a domain. I have to install windows 8.1 on my work laptop and I need to have someone from my work add a user to our domain. What I'm curious about i,s what would happen if I installed windows 8 and all the programs that I use before the user was added to the domain. Will this user have access to all the programs that were installed or would I potentially need to perform a hack or re-install the programs on that account? Any help would be appreciated.

    You can change your domain settings from System in Control Panel. You will not loose any installed programs.

    You do need Pro version of windows though.
