    I need to establish my wife's account on another computer


    Windows 10 Home Edition.My wife has an account on a laptop. I want to add her to a different laptop. She used to have an account on this second laptop, but I could not log in so I deleted the account.Now I want to add it back.

    I need to establish my wife's account on another computer

    want Wife’s account to show up at Windows Log in

    I just set up an HP computer for my wife. When the computer boots, it shows my account and asks for my pin. I added my wife as a family member, but that didn’t change the login screen. The old laptop is working properly showing wife’s account for login
    and I am an administrator. On the new machine, I show up on login and am an administrator also.

    what are the steps to have wife’s account as primary on this new laptop?
