If I have another user, say that needs to remotely access this system over a network connection, I make sure I add them to the Remote Desktop Users group and then they have access via Remote Desktop. Now by default all users, as soon as they're created are made members of the Users group.This is the group that is associated with the standard user account type that we looked at earlier. You can see that all the user accounts on this system are automatically made members of this group. So if we go back to 'Users' let's suppose that this user account right here 'MFinn' needs to have administrative access to the system. This user is a help desk user and from time to time she needs to be able to come in and access the system with administrator level privileges to make configuration changes, install software and so on. So what we want to do is come back over here to 'Groups', go to the administrator's group and add her user account to the administrator's group. I'll type 'MFinn' and notice it adds the computer name to the beginning of the account to specify that this is a local user account, not a domain user account.But is a local user account on the Win 10 system. I click 'OK' and I hit 'Apply'. And now 'MFinn' is an administrative user on this system. So that's one way to manage group membership. You can also manage group membership from the perspective of the individual user account. Previously over here we looked at the group and said "Who's a member of this group?" If we come over to 'Users' we can take a look at an individual user account, say which group is this user a member of. For example let's go to the properties of the 'SMarsden' account. Go to the member of tab and right now she's a member of just the users group. Well let's say that SMarsden

isanother one of my help desk employees and SMarsden's job is to back up the system each night. So she needs more access to the system then what the users group will provide. So we come down here to 'Add' and let's specify the name of a group that we want to add. Check names, we're going to make her a member of the backup operators default group. On the local system, click 'OK'. Hit 'Apply' and now, SMarsden has elevated access to the system, she's allowed to override certain restrictions in order to access the data on the system to back it up. Now you're not stuck with just these default groups, if you wanted to, you could create your own custom groups and assign specific privileges to them. Summary 14:37-14:52 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we walked about managing local users and groups. We talked about how to create user accounts on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. And then we talked about how to manage user accounts and group accounts using computer management on all three operating systems.

    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.
