It’s important to have user accounts because it was designed to secure Windows and people’s personal information. Regular users are granted permission that allows them to do things allowed only for a regular user. If the user tries to do something that requires admin privileges they will have to enter an admin password. The regular users are granted a permission token so if something they are trying to do is valid the user is given a security token. An administrative account has two tokens. One for daily work and one for admin- level privileges. But basically the benefits of have user accounts is that it allows regular users to run administrative functions without needing access to the whole admin account, and it ensures that programs cant runs as admin without the user knowing beforehand. 12. Provide a link to a site that describes how to set up and modify user accounts and rights, including those for administrators, Group policies, read/write (and other) levels of access to files, directories, and applications. Briefly describe the process and why this would be an important skill to have. Insert Link here: - us/usercpl_overview.mspx?mfr=true User accounts allows a person to add users to a computer and to ass users to a group. Permissions and user rights are granted to groups. By adding a user to a group, that person gives the user all permissions and user rights assigned to that group. This would be an important skill to have because a lot of companies have user accounts set up like this and if you are well skilled in this area a person can use this knowledge to an advantage. So being well skilled with user accounts can gain you more access to administrative instead of being a regular user.

    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.
