  1. Should Know This But Would Kindly Ask For Guidance Re: Accounts


    New computer will be arriving shortly. This is what I want to do. Open to all suggestions. At first boot I want to create a login account which if I am not mistaken is different from a Local or Standard Account and an Administrative account.

    I will be hitting the power button NOT CONNECTED to the Internet.

    So I want to log into the computer with login account called "abc" with password "def". I know I need to enter "skip" a lot of steps to do this.

    I then want to create a local/ standard account and an admin account.

    Let's say I want my local account which I will be using for 95% of the time to be:

    L: local@gmail.com

    And my admin account to be:

    L: admin@gmail.com

    And lets say further that I have already created these gmail accounts and I have been able to log in to those gmail accounts.

    So now what do I do. I connect to the Internet. I go to Control Panel and User Accounts. I am hoping that there are no accounts there but something tells me that that first login account that I created "login account called "abc" with password "def" is going to be there. Is that right? And if so does the computer think that that simple login account is my admin account?

    So just to be clear I want to log in to my computer with the "login account called "abc" with password "def"and then set up a local/ standard account called L: local@gmail.com and an admin acct called L: admin@gmail.com.

    How would I do this and is my thinking ass backwards : )

    P.S. I know that I can not use admin in and admin account.

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.

    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:
