Hi Nishat!

Unfortunately, there is not a fix for this problem, unless you talk to your domain administrator. It sounds like the administrator has set up accounts that reset at each log in, generally called “roaming profiles”. The main reason for this is for security:  if someone changes something that causes problems, it would be erased as soon as that person logs off.

Many businesses and schools choose to have user profiles and computers set up this way to prevent any changes that can affect the performance of the machine, especially if there are multiple users of the machine.

Thanks for the question!
