The How To..
Here's What's Said In The Video..
Creating multiple accounts on your computer is a good idea. This allows you to share your computer with friends, family or co-workers without them being able to access your files, favourite pages on the Internet or emails. Here's how you can create an account for others.
Go to "Settings."
Go to "Accounts."
Click "Family and Other Users."
You can create an account for an additional user by creating a Microsoft account or a local account. So we're just going to do a local account. It doesn't have as many features but it does set them up with an account. If they want to attach or customise their account at any point for the Microsoft features they can do it themselves.
Click "I don't have this person's sign in information".
This allows us to skip the online features, or the cloud features of an account and just use a standard simple account.
So we can choose "Add a user without a Microsoft Account."
And then we can just pop their name in and create a password for them if you like.
And then hit "Next".
And then they have an account here.
So if they want to sign in you can click Start.
Click on your username at the top left of the start menu and choose "sign out".
Or you can actually just click their username as well and that will sign in as them which gives them their own desktop with all their own icons on it so they can customise their own computer experience.
