So we're going to focus on administrator and standard user accounts. If I did want to create JMarshallas an administrator I could select that here at this point. But just as before the bulk of my users will just be standard users because I don't want them changing things that they shouldn't be changing. So I'm going to leave 'JMarshall" set as a standard user, click OK and we now have the user account created. Let's go ahead and take a look at how we do the same thing on a Windows 10 system. Now Windows 10 is just like Windows 8 in that you have to use the Settings app to manage user accounts instead of Control Panel. If we go in to Control Panel and go to User Accounts 'User Accounts' and 'Manage Another Account', just like Windows 8 it gives us the option to create the new user in PC Settings. So we can save a little time by going straight in to Settings instead of going through Control Panel.We'll come over here and click 'Accounts' and now we need to come down to 'Family and Other Users' and once again we're going to ignore the family options cause we're going to assume that you're going to be working in a work environment. So we're going to come down here and add someone else to this PC. Now, just as with Windows 8, by default Windows 10 wants you to sign in using a Microsoft online user account. And again we're not talking about those types of accounts in this lesson. We're going to focus on local user accounts. So I need to come down here and click 'I don't have this persons sign in information.' and once again it says "OK, well let's create an online account." I actually don't want to do that, Microsoft, thank you.Let's go down here and click on 'Add a user without a Microsoft account.' Now we can type in the user name for the user. Let's type 'SMarsden'. Provide 'SMarsden' with a password. Once again we will circumvent the highly insecure password hint field by typing "hint". Next. So, no, we have a new user account named 'S Marsden'. If I click on 'SMarsden' I can change the account type if I need to from a standard user to an administrator. I'm not going to do that because I don't want 'SMarsden' to be an administrator. At least not at this point. OK, so that's how you create user accounts on Windows 7, 8 and 10. On Windows 7 we used Control Panel, Windows 8 and Windows 10 we used the Settings app. Manage User Accounts and Group Accounts 8:55-14:36 Now, there are other ways to manage user accounts on a Windows system. One of those is to use Computer Management. Basically this will use the Users and Groups snap in. And a lot of system administrators prefer to use the User and Group snap in, instead of Control Panel or the Settings app,because it provides a lot more administrative control over the user accounts. So let's go ahead and do that on this Windows 10 system. We'll open up Computer Management. The nice thing about this as well is the fact that the interface for the Users and Group snap in is exactly the same on Windows 7, 8 and 10. Over under 'Local Users and Groups' we can expand it and then we have our 'Users' and then we have our 'Groups'. Go to 'Users' and let's add another user account to the system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
