Organize apps by User Accounts?


Since Windows starts to bog down the more apps you install on it, I had an idea that I THOUGHT was brilliant, but now it appears it won't work.


My idea was to install only more core apps on my main user accounts and create separate accounts for gaming, experimenting, etc.


I had THOUGHT each user account had its own registry and other settings files and thus apps you install in the User2 account wouldn't clutter User1 accounts. But from my experiments, it appears apps installed in User2 are also available to User1. And the best I could find is to block access to apps by user -- but that doesn't actually reduce clutter or curb bogginess.


Is that accurate?


Can any of you think of a way to do what I'm trying to do? The only other options I've come up with are VMs, but that comes with its own challenges.
