Click the account you’d like to change.
Windows displays a page with the account’s photo and lets you tweak the account’s settings in any of these ways:
* Change the Account Name: Here’s your chance to correct a misspelled name on an account. Or feel free to jazz up your own account name, changing Jane to Crystal Powers.
* Create/Change a Password: Every account should have a password to keep out other users. Here’s your chance to add one or change the existing one.
* Set Up Microsoft Family: An Easter egg for parents, Microsoft Family lets you choose the hours that an account holder may access the PC, as well as limit the programs and games the account holder may run. (Change Account Settings)
* Change the Account Type: Head here to promote a Standard user of high moral character to an Administrator account or bump a naughty administrator down to Standard.
* Delete the Account: Don’t choose this option hastily, because deleting somebody’s account also deletes all her files. If you do choose it, also choose the subsequent option that appears, Keep Files. That option places all of that person’s files in a folder on your desktop for safekeeping. (Change Account Settings)
* Manage Another Account: Save your current crop of changes and begin tweaking somebody else’s account.
When you’re through, close the window by clicking the red X in its top-right corner. Any changes made to a user’s account take place immediately. (Change Account Settings)
