How to add a User Account in Windows 7

This article details how to add a limited user or administrator account to a Windows 7 system. This can be useful when adding users to the system and will allow each of them to have their own customizable interface.

  1. Log on to an administrator account.
  2. NOTE: If unsure which is an administrator account, follow the next two steps.
  3. Click on the Start button in the bottom left corner of the screen.

  4. In the Search Programs and Files box, type Add user.

  5. Click on the Add or remove user accounts option at the top.

  6. Click on Create User Account in the middle of the newly opened screen.

    NOTE: If this option is not available, that means the account that is in use is a limited user account.
  7. Enter the name for the account (usually the name of the user, but it can be whatever is preferred.)

  8. Select Standard User or Administrator. Read the criteria on the page to determine which should be used.

  9. Click on Create Account in the bottom right.

  10. The Account is now created. If a password is desired, click on the newly created account.

  11. Click on Create a Password and fill in the information.
