Windows 7 User Permissions VS Windows XP User Permissions

    Question

  • Hi!

    I would like to know differences between the User Permissions for each User Type (Local Administrator, Power User, Standard User) between the two Operating Systems Windows 7 and Windows XP. A detailed list would be ideal, but links to some MS KB articles providing detailed information for each user type and respective permissions would be sufficient.

     

    Currently, I have managed to find some links regarding user type permissions for Windows XP which are:

    http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/usercpl_overview.mspx?mfr=true

    http://www.wellesley.edu/Computing/WinXP/wxpgroups.html#administrator

     Although some additional links would be helpful.

     

    However, I am having difficulty finding detailed links for Windows 7 User Accounts (the ones that I find mainly involve UAC, but I need more in-depth/specific information for each user type permissions).

     

    Can you help direct me to some MS KB articles (mainly for Windows 7 user account types and permissions) OR provide a list (either differences between permissions of the 2 OS or list of permissions for the Windows 7 user types)?

    Thank you!
