MAC OS Changing default user Profile/templates

Tree steps to create customized default profile for Mac OS:

Step 1: Modify the profile as you prefer.

sudo rm -rf /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/*
(Removes contents from English.lproj folder)

Step 2: Copy the modified profile to the Default Template

sudo cp -R /Users/”default”/* /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/*

(Copies your newly created “default” user profile/template) *May take a minute if profile is big

Or may try this command to copy your “default” profiles
sudo cp -R /Users/”default” /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj

Step 3: Check permissions on the harddisk.
