    Questions concerning aditional 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!

    :)

    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)

    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

    Questions concerning aditional accounts

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.
