How to add a new User Account in Windows 7


To create a new user account,
follow the below steps :

Click the Start button , then click Control Panel

Under the User Accounts and Family Safety category, click on Add or

remove user accounts

The Manage Accounts window will open, where all the created accounts are

displayed, click on Create a new account

The Create New Account window will open, here you will need to type a name for

the new user account and select a type for it, either standard or as an administrator.

There are three types of accounts. Each type gives users a different level of control over

the computer:

  • Standard accounts are for everyday computing.

  • Administrator accounts provide the most control over a computer, and should only be

used when necessary.

  • Guest accounts are intended primarily for people who need temporary use of a computer.

When you are logged on to Windows with a standard account, you can do almost anything that you can

do with an administrator account, but if you want to do something that affects other users on the

computer, such as installing software or changing security settings, Windows might ask you to provide a password for an administrator account.

That's why its recommended creating a standard account for each user. This will protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer, such as deleting files that are required for the computer to work, thi will also prevent kids from installing unwanted software and if you want to give access to someone on your computer without having access to your personal files

After typing the new user account name and selecting his account type, click on the Create Account button

  • The Manage Accounts window will be opened again, and as you can see now the new user account is

listed along with the other user accounts.

TO CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT ON WINDOWS 8, 8.1 AND 10 THE STEPS ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT BUT IF YOU

TYPE THE KEYWORD " USERS " ( NO QUOTES ) YOU SHOULD SEE THE OPTION TO ADD, EDIT OR REMOVE

USERS AND JUST FOLLOW THE STEPS FROM THERE
