If other people, besides you, use your computer, you can create them an account of their own. You can create an account so when they login, they can login to their account and not bother anything that is in your account. It is basically setting up a new computer for a new user. In this guide, I will show you how to create new accounts on your computer.
Opening Your New Account Options
The first step is to open your new account options. To open this box, follow these steps. Load your control panel by clicking your Start button. Inside the control panel, find the User Accounts link and click it. In the following box, locate the Create a New Account link and click it. A box will then open and this is where you will begin creating a new user. Let’s walk through the steps together.
Creating a New User on Your Computer
In the first step of the box, you will need to enter the person’s name you are creating the account for. Click the Next button at the bottom of the box to continue on. On the next screen, you will need to select if you want the person to have admin capabilities or limited capabilities. Select the option of your choice and click the Create Account button.
You will now see the name of the new account you just created. Click the name and the box will refresh. In this box, you will need to create a password for the user, change the photo, and save the new settings. If you want to, you can leave it up to the user to change their own photo. But you can create the password for the account.
A password is optional. You do not have to create a password for the user to log on. They can simply click their name in the list and the computer will log on. However, if you do not want any and everyone see a certain account, then you should password protect it.
When you are finished setting up the new account, you can close all of the boxes out. Unless you want to create more accounts. If you have more accounts to create, you can continue on with creating them by selecting the Create an Account option.
