Add Local Account User

Create a local user

1. Open your account settings

Click the Start button, then click Settings in Start.
 Click “Account” to display the account settings screen. 

2. Open the screen to create a user

Since the display differs between versions 21H2 and 22H2, they are explained separately. Ver.21H2 User creation screen

 Click the Add Account button under Add Other Users.
 Ver.22H2 Screen to create a user

3. Create a local user

1. When the Microsoft account screen appears, click “I don’t have this person’s sign-in information.”
 2. When “Create an account” is displayed, click “Add a user without a Microsoft account”.
 3. When “Create a user for this PC” appears, enter your username and password.

User name characters
Single-byte alphanumeric characters are recommended for user names. In Japanese, some apps may not be available. Also, if you include “half-width katakana” in the user name, the probability of occurrence of problems will increase.

4. After entering “Username” and “Password”, you will be able to move the screen, so “scroll” down and set a hint and answer in case you forget your password.
 5. Set all three questions and answers (required) in “Forgot your password?” and click “Next” when finished.

 The authority of the added user is created with “standard”. If you want to change the authority to “administrator”, it is introduced in the next section.

 2. When “Change Account Type” appears, click the “Account Type” selection box, select the permission type , and click “OK”.
