Windows 10 Account

How to create a second Admin account in Windows 10

The pre-setup account for all GGPC systems allows you to jump in right away, but sometimes you’ll want to create another Windows 10 account for another user, to keep programs organised, or other reasons.

To access your account settings, press the start button and type “other users”, clicking the “other users” option when it appears.

The first thing to do is to create a local user, following the steps below.

Select Add someone else to this PC.

Select I don’t have this person’s sign-in information

Select Add a user without a Microsoft account.

Enter a user name, password, password hint or choose security questions, and then select Next.

Now, if you want to turn that local user into an admin, select the account owner name, then select Change account type.

Under Account type, select Administrator and OK.

You can now press start, sign out of your current admin account and sign back in with the new administrator account. While logged into the new account, you can now create and remove additional accounts as needed.
