In Windows 10 user accounts and Windows 10 parental controls can be set easily. Learn how to set them here.
A user account allows you to sign in to Windows 10. By default, your computer already has one user account, which you were required to create when setting up Windows for the first time. But if you plan to share your computer, you can create a separate user account for each member of your home or office.
Connecting users to a Microsoft account will help them get the most out of Windows. But if a user prefers not to create a Microsoft account, you can also add a local user account that exists only on your computer.
Watch the video below to learn more about creating and managing user accounts:
Note that you must be signed in as an Administrator (the first user account created on your computer) to add a new user.
If you're finished using your account, you can sign out. To do this, click the Start button, select the current account in the top-left corner, then choose Sign out. Other users will then be able to sign in from the lock screen.
It's also easy to switch between users without signing out or closing your current apps. Switching users will lock the current user, so you won't need to worry about someone else accessing your account. To do this, select the current account, then choose the desired user from the drop-down menu. You can use this same method to switch back to the other user.
