Other Users Signing In

    Question

  • How do I setup up other users to sign in under their own account? When the computer boots up it shows myself as the administrator and requires my password. On this setting I can not access applications already installed on my computer when purchased. This is the only way I can sign in and I would like to learn how to bypass this so I can access the applications under a different account. I have never had this issue with previous computers. Hewlett Packard says it is a Windows 10 issue and Microsoft needs to assist me with this matter and they can't assist me until I cough some dough up - $149. Is there any accountability from either party to understand what I have purchased here? Please help me.

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 forum on Microsoft Community.

    The 'Academic Initiatives - Learning Resources' forum is for posts related to online / offline training / learning resources as related to Microsoft's Academic Initiatives.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • Hello,

    If i am understanding you correctly, you should just need to do the following to add a user account:

    Settings -> Accounts -> Other Users -> "Add someone else to this PC"

    If you want to add a user that is tied to a Microsoft Account, just follow the steps in the popup window. If not, follow these steps:

    1. Click "I don't have this person's sign-in information"

    2. Click "Add a user without a Microsoft Account"

    You can then enter the username and password for this account, which will be a local account with no cloud based access unless you tie it to a Microsoft account. Based on what you are saying, that may not be a problem.

    Let me know if this works for you.
