How to Create New User Account in Windows 8.1?
One can create a new user account in Windows 8.1 in 2 ways
- Creating a Microsoft Account
- Creating a Local Account
Create a Microsoft Account in Windows 8.1
To create Microsoft account, move the cursor to the lower right-hand corner of your computer screen, click ‘Settings’ and then ‘Change PC settings’.
Next, click Accounts, and then choose ‘Other accounts’. Click Add an account.
Now , here you are adding a person if he or she has a Microsoft account just enter the account. If does not have a Microsoft account, click Sign up for a new email address.Follow the instructions to finish setting up the account.
Create Local Account in Windows 8.1
A simple question darted my mind – is there any possible way to sign-in without a Microsoft account? Certainly, there is! And here’s the underlying trick.
Assuming you are on the ‘How this Person will Sign Up’ Screen, look for the link “Sign in without a Microsoft account.”
On being directed to a new screen, hit ‘Local Account’ tab.
Now, with the procedure to create your Microsoft Account skipped, you can go ahead and create a local account, similar to the one you created in previous Windows version. Enter your local account credentials and you should be done in seconds. You will have created a new Local account that you can log into instead of your Microsoft account.
Users not quite familiar with Windows 8.1 might got caught by this changed log in process and despite reservations and end up creating a Microsoft account.
Hope this clarifies things.
Incidentally, Quick User Manager is a freeware that lets you quickly manage users in Windows.
