Become more familiar with the Windows XP desktop in this free lesson.
More than one person can use your computer. For example, many family members might use the same computer at home, while several coworkers may be able to access your computer on a computer network. Windows XP allows everyone who uses your computer to have separate computer accounts. A computer account tracks each person's unique settings, documents, and email accounts.
Windows XP even enables you to log off the computer so someone else can log in without having to restart the computer.
