Windows 10 Pro, is registered, on a domain.  The Domain administrator can access personalize and get into themes just fine, but a Domain user cannot.  What is causing this?  I have had no similar issues with Windows 7 users in the past.  I'm not sure if this will cause me other issues moving forward or not, but I would like to eliminate it as a possibility. Any ideas?

Create a new local user utilizing the user's domain name and set it as an administrator. It will then grant that user administrative power over that PC.

So your saying to have a local user with the same username as used on the domain.  So it's not enough any more to simply grant the user local admin rights?  I'll try it.

Just to be clear, the user in question already had been granted local admin rights, I then created another local user with the same username, and made it a member of the local administrators.  This does not appear to be working either.

You must log off and then log back in for it to take effect.

I did, I even restarted the machine.  No change.  I'm starting to think something the Win10 installation is mucked up.

Problem does not appear to repeat itself on other clean installs.  It must of been that specific installation as I had several machines all of the same make and model.  Strange.
