How can I create a guest account in Windows 10?

Recommended Posts

Hi @Gerard D Gilles - That's really a great question. Microsoft made changes to Windows 10 around Guest accounts.

The easiest way is to just create a local account for your visitors to use. The account will not be able to access files in other user profiles. For 99% of cases, it should solve the requirement just fine.

I just created a quick how-to here for you: http://windows10forum.com/blogs/entry/8-how-to-create-a-local-windows-10-account-or-guest-account/

To turn it into a Guest account, just remove it from the Users group and add it to the Guests group.

Welcome to the forum! The first post is always the hardest! ;)
