  1. Guest User Restriction


    Hello.

    I want to restrict access to a drive by a local user account. With my admin account I did Properties > Security > Remove all access for that user account. And when I switch to the other account it just shows NTFS drive and inaccessible.

    But within that account when I did Properties > Security > Gave myself all permissions it removed the restriction.


    Note : No admin password was asked. My admin account was signed out.


    How is this possible ?

    Thank You

    :)

    Hi Voytek,

    To remove the guest account from your start screen, we suggest that you try the following steps:

    • Right-click Start menu, then select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Enable guest account first by typing net user guest /active:yes, then press
      Enter.
    • Disable guest account by typing net user guest /active:no, then press
      Enter.
    • Perform a
      clean boot in Windows.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.

  4. Guest User Restriction

    Need to restrict user access

    Hi,

    I suggest you to create guest account. Guest account is designed for users who require temporary access to a computer and don’t need to store their user-specific profile settings permanently. Users who log on as a guest have
    a very limited set of permissions. For example, they cannot access other users’ files or perform system wide tasks such as installing software or hardware.

    For security reasons, the built-in Guest account is disabled by default. This prevents users from having an option to log on to the system as Guest.

    Files on the root of C: are available to the guest account in order to allow it to run properly, but files in the "Users" folder are not unless someone gave the guest user folder permissions.

    To enable the guest account I would suggest you to try the following steps.

    a. Type This PC in the search bar.

    b. Right-click This PC , and then click Manage.

    c. Click Local Users and Groups.

    d. Click Users.

    f. Right-click the Guest account, choose Properties.

    g. On the General tab, select Account is Enabled.

    h. Click Ok.

    Hope this information is helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
