How to create a New User on Windows 10


User management of Windows 10 has changed a quite, since previous versions of Windows. Current user and role management focuses mainly on creating an account which is linked to Microsoft account and is connected to app store and other services using your Live or Microsoft email IDs. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to create Microsoft account or link to it.

You can definitely create a local account which is only on your PC. This works great due to fact that you don’t need a person’s email or password while adding it to your PC. I also tend to believe that it gives more control to you over your own PC.

To Add or Create New User on Windows 10 follow below steps

1. Click on Start Menu and type something like ‘user’.

2. Select ‘Add, edit, or remove other people’.
