    Adding a user in Windows 10 Home


    I've been using Windows 10 for a while now. Recently, I've done fresh updates, which eventually created windows.old folder.

    The problem started when I logged in as Administrator, and removed existing user account. I can't create back another user account.


    From Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Manage another account -> Manage Accounts -> Add a new user in PC settings, opens up Settings screen.

    From there, I click "Add someone else to this PC" and it results in following screen:


    Adding a user in Windows 10 Home 4c579e19-e751-48c9-9155-47cfb143c3d7?upload=true.png

    True that I have Windows 10 Home edition, but this was never problem.

    Does any one have any clue?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. windows 10 - Microsoft Store & Adding new user

    Hi,

    Creating or adding new user account is one possible troubleshooting step that you can perform whenever you are encountering problems with Windows Store. Through this, we can identify if there are corrupted files in the current user that causes problem with
    Windows Store. If you are having problem adding account through Account settings, let us try these steps instead:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type this net localgroup administrator test /add and hit
      Enter
      .
    Keep us posted.
