    How to create a Guest account?

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Please reply with the following details to assist you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps:



    • What is the complete error message you receive?
    • Which edition of Windows 10 are you using i.e. Windows 10 Home/Pro?


    Ideally, if you are using Windows 10 Pro, you can create a Standard account and then, you can change the Group permissions as a Guest for that particular Standard account. The permissions for the Standard user account will be same as for the Guest
    account.



    Please follow the steps mentioned below to create the account:



    1. Press Windows key + R, to open
      Run
      dialog box.
    2. Type netplwiz and click on
      OK
      .
    3. Click on Add and follow the on-screen instructions to create a new user account.
    4. Now, double click on the newly created user account and click on
      Group Membership.
    5. Click on the radio button for others and select
      Guest from the drop down list.
    6. Click on Apply and OK.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Create (alternative) Guest Account in W10 Home?


    Apparently, Windows 10 Home does not quite support Guest accounts.
    Yes, one can activate the internal Guest account with net user Guest /active:yes
    But then it does not show up in the log in screen, or it does show up, but nothing happens when you enter it.

    Is there a way to create an alternative guest account?
    E.g.
    • Create a local account (not associated with an e-mail address or Microsoft account)
    • Somehow give it the characteristics that mimic the Guest account as we used to know it
      Note: W10 Home does not provide User Group Management
      • Advanced Registry tweaks?
      • PowerShell script?
      • ...
