Windows 7 User Accounts control which files and programs users can access and what types of changes users can make to a shared computer. Typically, you’ll want to create standard accounts for most computer users using these steps:
- Click the Start button
- Click Control Panel, then click User Accounts and Family Safety
- Click User Accounts
- Click Manage another account (If you’re prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.)
- Click Create a new account
- Type the name you want to give the user account, click an account type, and then click Create Account
More information on User Accounts is available in the Windows 7 Help and How-To center.
