User Accounts - add a user

How to add a new user to your computer with Windows XP.

1. Press the Start button then click Control Panel.

2. Now click User Accounts.

3. You can now pick a task: Change an account, Create a new account, or Change my picture.

4. Select Create a new account from the list.

5. First, you are asked to give the account a name, use the user's name for this.

6. Next, you need to decide what level of access the account will have. Choose Computer Administrator for full access, or Limited, which will prevent the user from making system changes and adding or deleting certain types of software (ideal for the kids).

7. Finally, click Create Account.
