  1. Unable to creat user account


    As the Administrator I try to create a new account and I get an error as follows:

    Local users and groups

    This snapin may not be used with this version of Windows 10. To manage user accounts for this computer, use the User Accounts tool in the Control Panel.

    I did get here from the Control Panel, but it still took me to settings to add a user.

    I am running Windows 10 Home

    Version 1909

    OS Build 18363.628

    Any insight would be helpful

  2. Unable to create new User account

    Hi Richard,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.


    • Are you logged in with a Microsoft account or Local account?

    • Are you trying to create new user account using Administrator account?
    I suggest you to run SFC scan.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files

    Run the System File Checker (SFC) scan to fix any corrupted files. Follow these steps:

    Unable To Create User Accounts - Windows 10


    I don’t know if this addition to my original thread will push it to the top of the queue. I have tried again by pasting netplwiz into the Run box as suggested by marshian. Yesterday I managed to create another User Account which although described as an Administrator Account indicates ‘This app can’t open’ for every single item. Can anybody please suggest how I can change this situation? Today I did the same thing again but find that I CAN open the various programs on that Account – although the Account is listed under a Users Group not Administrators Users.
    There is also a Guest Account listed but as yet I haven’t been able to get into that since it does not appear for the next Log On when I click my Log Off or Switch Users shortcuts.
    I will be grateful for any advice, Thanks ........
