  2. Unable to create new User account

    Original Title: What do you do to add an account when the links to add an account for ANY type of account do not work?

    I tried to set up a standard account in Windows 10, but it wont let me set up any type of user account on the local machine. The links you click on do not work.It is not the mouse. Everything else works. Anyone have a workaround?

  3. 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:

    Add Someone Else to this PC button doesn't work in Accounts. But then the reason could be what is stopping me from accessing
    the Action Center, Search/Cortana and Edge.

    Unable to Create New User Account

    I had considered that but means a lot of work to re -install all the software and there is no guarantee that the problem wont show up again.
    I little bit of history:
    I upgraded from W8.1 to W10 on my laptop, everything worked fine for just a short time, then I lost several functions. I then upgrade W7 on my desktop, and again it went well, then as above. I then did a clean install, this returned everything to normal for just a short period of time, and now I have to PC's with the problem that won't go away.

    You might see if troubleshooting with a clean boot may be able to reveal a culprit.

    I'm just not sure what may help with all those issues other than a clean install though. Does it start after doing anything specific that you noticed?
