Child-proof your Windows 10 PC with user accounts

Do you share your Windows 10 PC with other users in your home? If so, you should configure separate user accounts for everyone that shares the device. This is particularly appropriate if you share your Windows 10 device with your children. By configuring a separate, limited user account for your child, you not only prevent them from tampering with advanced PC settings that could cause computer problems, but you also prevent them from using your account to make unauthorised purchases in the Windows store. We’ve all seen in the news how children have borrowed their parents devices and then run up huge bills buying in-game content, don’t let that happen to you!

Not using Windows 10? Tutorials for creating user accounts are available for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 users too. Click here for the Windows XP version or click here for the Windows Vista/Windows 7 version.

Additional notes

Can’t see the “Family and other users” option? – In this case you are signed in with a standard user account. To add new users to a Windows 10 PC you must have administrator access. You will need to speak to whoever set up your user account about adding additional user accounts to the machine.
