How do I create Windows user accounts?

A Windows user account is a unique profile that includes all the settings, privileges and personal files for each user. Windows accounts let the home PC administrator control access for each user.


Setting up user accounts comes in handy when the PC is used by both parents and children - a parent can set up accounts for each child.

Choose which operating system you have to find out how to create Windows accounts.

  • Windows XP:

    1. Log on to your computer as an administrator.

    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.

    3. Click Create a new account.

    4. Type the name for the user. You can use the person's full name, first name, or a nickname. Then click Next.

    5. For the account type, choose Limited, and then Create Account. Limited accounts are appropriate for children because they cannot make system-wide changes or install certain applications.

    6. Your new account will have been created and you will see it listed in the Manage Accounts screen.

  • Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    1. Log on to your computer as an administrator.

    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.

    3. Click Create a new account.

    4. Type the name for the user. You can use the person's full name, first name, or a nickname. Then click Next.

    5. For the account type, click Standard, and then Create Account. Limited accounts are appropriate for children because they cannot make system-wide changes or install certain applications.

    6. Your new account will have been created and you will see it listed in the Manage Accounts screen.

  •  Windows 8:

  1. Log on to your computer as an administrator.
  2. Point your mouse to the upper right corner of the screen, click Settings and then click Change PC settings.
  3. Click Users in the left side menu and then click Add a user.
 

You can create either a Microsoft account or a Local account. Read the description of each account type and follow the on-screen instructions to create a new account.

 

 

Note

Now that you have added new user accounts, you can create passwords for the accounts.
