You’d need to copy all documents, favorite links, etc. over to the new user profile.
Easiest way is likely using a migration tool as if you were migrating to a new machine.
The User State Migration Tool is now included as part of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10. You can download it

That depends on how the IT is structured in your company. A home user can go and delete the folder with his username in the C:\Users folder after making backup copies of the documents inside that you want to keep. But in a corporate environment it might not be that simple. And a less drastic way would be to fix just what was broken if it can be identified. I have found that IT support personnel tends to use profile resetting as a standard solution to all software problems but that it often doesn’t help, resulting only to extra work for the user when the real problem is in drivers, hardware or company policy.

Oh sorry I thought you meant my SU profile. Lol Creating another user profile on my computer would involve employer IT. Gonna have to wait until I can get back to the office. Currently, working from home due to corona virus.
Put the tape deck on pause for now… thanks everyone for your input.
