How to add another user to Windows 10

If there are a few of you using one computer, and you don't want them to log in to your user, learn how to add a new one in the following steps.

Step 1

Settings and Accounts

Click the Start button and choose Settings, then click Accounts, as shown on the images on the right.

Step 2

Adding the user account

Click on Family & other users on the toolbar on the left part of the screen, then click Add someone to this PC.

Step 3

First sign-in

For the purposes of this Daisy’s how to, we want to create a classic additional user account, that is not connected to any third party service via e-mail or a mobile number, so we are going to click I don’t have this person’s sign-in information.

Step 4

Second sign-in

In this step Microsoft wants you to create a user account using your own Microsoft account so we are going to skip this step by clicking on Add a user without a Microsoft account.

Step 5

Creating a new user account

In this step, you need to write username and a password for a new user sign-in, then click Next to finish the process.

Peace of advice: do not use a short password as shown in the image, this is just for demonstration purposes.

And all the new user has to do now is sign in with their username and password.
