Create a local account for a child or someone else who doesn't have a Microsoft account. And if needed, you can give that account administrator permissions.
- As you create an account, choosing a password and keeping it safe are essential steps. Because we don’t know your password, if you forget it or lose it, we cannot recover it for you.
- If you're using Windows 10, version 1803 and later, you can add security questions, as you'll see in step 4 under Create a local user account. With answers to your security questions, you can reset your Windows 10 local account password.
- Select the Start button, select Settings > Accounts and then select Family & other users. (In some editions of Windows you'll see Other users.)
- Select Add someone else to this PC.
- Select I don't have this person's sign-in information, and on the next page, select Add a user without a Microsoft account.
- Enter a user name, password, password hint or choose security questions, and then select Next.
- Under Settings > Accounts > Family & other users, select the account owner name, then select Change account type.
- Under Account type, select Administrator and OK.
- Sign in with the new administrator account.
