I've not dealt with toolboxes in 8.2 yet, but that's like usual: the
defaults you don't have in the SASUSER.PROFILE. The defaults have to be
somewhere in the SASHELP cataloges. As soon as you change anything, e.g you
define keys, toolboxes, window-sizes, ... you'll get that changes reflected
in entries in the SASHELP.PROFILE catalog.
To make changes available for all, you can create a central PROFILE catalog
somewhere in the network and copy the entries you have there into the User -
Profile at installation. Some sites do that at each start of the SAS
environment to have a standard configuration for each user. That means on
the other hand, that all settings which are changed by the user are changed
to standard at the next start. If you have experienced users, they copy
their settings to a private catalog and overwrite the standard with their
individual settings after start.
