  2. Can I make a new windows account?

    Hello to everybody,

    And thanks for your precious contribution to the forums!

    I only wanted to add to make sure you have a backup copy of pictures, videos, music and podcasts that you have on the phone, before performing the hard reset.

    This because the hard reset will wipe all of the contents stored on the internal memory of the phone.

    You can find more information on how to save your data on the following pages:

    Can I make a new windows account?

    To set up a new account you'll need to:

    1) Sign up for a new account (if you haven't so) at www.outlook.com

    2) Perform a hard reset Settings > about > [more info] > [reset your phone]

    Keep in mind that any apps you've downloaded or purchased with the old account will not carry over and you'd need to purchase them again.

    On the other hand if you believe the date of birth in the other account is already considered 18+, you can promote it to adult. You'd have to contact Microsoft for more details or use XBOX dashboard for this.

    Good luck~

    Can Not Make a Account on windows 10.

    If you get "access denied" error, it's possible that your main account is a standard user, not administrator.

  5. the main account is administrator, when I click "Add someone else to this PC" or "add a family member," the window pops up and goes away. When I try it on the other account it lets me add with no problem.

  6. are you using windows 10 pro? you could try creating the account through the group policy editor, or you could right click the start button and go to computer management and navigate to System Tools>Local Users and Groups>Users and create an account in that window if that feature is in windows 10 home if that is what you're using.

    I'm assuming that will work since it sounds like you're using an account that has migrated from a version of windows that you upgraded to w10, and i would guess something migrated with it that is changing the behavior of the system settings app, perhaps something you did to restrict metro features in win8.

    Another thing you could try is to attach that user to a microsoft account if its not already, i'm not certain what that would accomplish but i think it has a good chance of helping, just remember that the password to log in will be what ever you use when you make that connection and not what it is currently.
