Creating a Microsoft user account

Creating a new Microsoft user account is easy. You should have one standard account for your day-to-day computing, plus one standard account for every other person who will use your computer. Microsoft accounts require passwords, so you must set up a password when you create a new Microsoft account.

Keep in mind that each user account has its own collection of files, Xbox Live settings, Windows Phone information, apps, and settings.


Tip
If you’ve been using your administrative account for a while, you may not want to create a new standard account from scratch. Better to create a new administrative account from scratch and then change your current account from an administrative account to a standard account. That way, you won’t have to move files from your current account to the new account.

To create a new Microsoft user account, display the Charms Bar, click Settings, click Change PC Settings, and click Users. Click Add A User Account to get to the Add A User page shown in Figure 3.

Type in an e-mail address for the user account. If you do not have an e-mail address, see the following section, “Creating a new e-mail address for a new user account.”

After you type an e-mail address, click Next to see the Add A User window (as shown in Figure 4). Click Finish to complete the account creation process. You can repeat the process to create as many user accounts as you wish.

FIGURE 4 Fill out information about your new Microsoft account.
