How to add a new user in Windows?

1. To add a new user in Windows, you will first need to open the Control Panel. To do this, either:

• Click on the Start button and type “Control Panel”
• Right click on the Start button and select Control Panel from the list of options

2. In the Control Panel, click on “User Accounts and Family Safety”.

3. Then select “Add or remove user accounts”.

4. The “Manage Accounts” window will appear, which will allow you to manage the currently active user accounts on your computer.

5. Click the “Create a new account” link at the bottom of the window.

6. In the “Create New Account” window, enter a name for the new user, choose an account type, and then click “Create Account”.

7. After you click “Create Account”, the account will be created and you’ll be taken to the “Manage Accounts” window again.

8. Select the newly created user account and click on “Change the account type”.

9. From here, you can set the account type to be an administrator or a standard user. If you select Administrator, the user will be able to make changes to the system as well as install software, while a standard user will have limited privileges.

10. Once you have chosen the appropriate account type, click “Change Account Type”.

11. You can now log in as the new user. To do this, click “Start”, and then select the account that you just created from the drop-down menu.

12. You will then be prompted to enter a password for the user. You may also be asked to provide a hint as to what the password is. Once you enter the password, click “OK”.

13. Afterwards, the system will log on to the new user account.

14. You can now customize the user’s settings. To do so, click “Start”, type “Control Panel” into the search box, and then select “User Accounts and Family Safety”.

15. From here, you can change the user’s desktop background, password, and other settings.

16. And finally, you can use the “Manage Accounts” window to delete, rename, or modify any of the existing user accounts on the system.
