Lägg till ett nytt användarkonto

You can create multiple user accounts on your computer and give a user account to everyone who uses your computer. That way, you can make sure that your files remain private and every user will have their own home folder, documents, and custom settings.

You will need administrator privileges to add user accounts. The administrator is usually the person who first set up their account when the computer was first purchased and set up, although others may also have been given administrator privileges by that first user.

If you are the administrator, follow these steps to create more user accounts:

  1. Type "Settings" into the global search bar on your desktop. Click on the resulting Settings icon, or press Enter, to open.

  2. Click on Users.

  3. Tryck på Lås upp i övre högra hörnet och skriv in ditt lösenord när du blir tillfrågad.

  4. Tryck på +-knappen nedanför kontolistan till vänster för att lägga till ett nytt användarkonto.

  5. If you want the new user to have administrative access to the computer, select Administrator for the account type. Administrators can do things like add and delete users, install software and drivers, and change the date and time.

  6. Mata in användarens fullständiga namn. Användarnamnet kommer att fyllas i automatiskt baserat på det fullständiga namnet. Om du inte tycker om det föreslagna användarnamnet så kan du ändra det.

  7. You can chose to set a password for the new user, or let them set it themselves on their first login. You can press on the generate password icon to automatically generate a random password.

  8. Klicka på Lägg till….

If you want to change the password after creating the account, select the account, Unlock the panel and press on the current password status.

In the Users panel, you can click the image next to the user's name to the right to set an image for the account. This image will be shown in the login window. Endless provides some stock photos you can use, or you can select your own or take a picture with your webcam.

You may want to create a "Guest" account so that friends or others who visit you can use it and you can rest assured that they will not mess up any of your preferernces, or delete files.
