    Questions concerning additional accounts


    I have a 'small storage' hybrid 2-in-1 tablet PC. In addition to my main (Administrator) account I have two additional accounts, to which I have given very little attention until now. One was created by a MS tech to help with some remote work he did; one (local Administrator) was created by me by clicking a menu item in Winaero Tweaker. I am giving them some attention at the moment as a part of preparing for the immanent October update, which is the reason for question 1, as follows:

    1. what effect do these extra accounts have on available storage space on my C drive? If I were to remove one or both of them would this release some storage space on my small emmc SSD C drive? Would it be an insignificant amount (lets say less than 1 GB) or might it make a worthwhile difference?

    2. what determines what is displayed when I open these accounts, they do not have the desktop from my main account, instead they have a 'selection' of the main account's desktop icons which is different in each case. How is this 'selection' made? It looks somewhat random.

    3. as I am the only user are there useful things which can be achieved with these additional accounts? So far I have not even created any extra desktops in my main account, though I can see this is something I may do at some point.

    I hope this makes sense!

    :)

  2. Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)

  3. Questions Concerning Keyboard

    To rectify your concern making the Fn key as a default, we suggest contacting the laptop manufacturer since there are separate keyboard settings for a gaming device that needs to be configured.

    With regards to the first follow up question, can you confirm to us if the static sound occurs on all the music you play? As an initial troubleshooting, we suggest following the steps outlined on this article:

    Fix sound problems
    . This reference has been proven to resolve most of the common sound concerns.

    About the surround keys issue, it is best to reach out to the laptop manufacturer so they can check the specifics of your keyboard. They have the expertise to physically inspect it and find any hardware related issues.

    Feel free to post back should you have additional queries.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del
