HOW TO CREATE A NEW USER LOCAL ACCOUNT WITH AND WITHOUT FULL ACCESS TO YOU COMPUTER (WINDOWS 10).

To get started, go to the bottom right corner of your computer and click on Notifications, then go into All Settings.

From there, select Accounts and go to Family and users.

At this point, there are two options for the kind of account you will like to open. When you go for “Your Family” where it requires you to sign in with a Microsoft account, an email will be requested from you and you will not be able to bypass that.

In other words, to avoid putting your email you can simply go to Add someone else to this PC and fill in the field for Username and choose your preferred password (it is optional anyway). Then click Next.

And as you can see in the photo below, an account has already been created. Therefore, whenever you log in you will see the choice available with the Added account and your very own account (The Administrator account).

The account created will have local privileges called the Standard User Account. That is to say, it doesn’t have all the privileges just as the Administrative account. The Administrative user account full control over the computer but the Standard User does not. A Standard User cannot install software for example, without you permitting him to do so. It is 100% secure in case of viruses because they will need permission before they can be installed. Therefore, I recommend all users on the computer should be Standard users and not Administrative user. But if you trust the people that are going to be using the other accounts, you can as well change it from Standard User Account to an Administrative user account.
