How to create a user in Windows
To create a new user in Windows, please make sure you are logged in with an account that has Administrator privileges. Now, go to the Windows 8.1 Start Screen and type Add User. When the search results appear click on the Settings category as shown below.
Now click on the option labeled Give other users access to this computer, which will open the User Settings screen.
Scroll down and click on the Add User option as shown above. You will now be at a screen prompting you to enter the user’s email address.
By default, the above screen prompts you to enter an email so that you create a Microsoft account. If you wish to create a Microsoft account, enter your email address and click on the Next button. If the email address is not an existing Microsoft account you will be prompted to register one. When the registration process is completed, Microsoft will send an email to the inputted email address. In this email will be a link that you need to click on in order to verify that you want this Microsoft account used on this computer.
If you do not wish to use a Microsoft account, you should instead click on the Sign in without a Microsoft account option in the screen above. You will be brought to a screen where Windows will ask again if you are sure you wish to make a Local account. Click on the Local account button and this will bring you to a new screen where you need to input the information you wish to use for the Local account. At this screen you need to fill in the desired user name, password, and a hint that will be used to help you remember your password. When you are done filling in the information, please click on the Next button.
Your account should now be created and you will see a confirmation screen similar to the one below.
If the new account belongs to a child and you wish to enable Family Safety, please place a check mark in the checkbox and click on the Finish button.
