    Why does user B have user A's email address and subject lines.


    I have two users. User A is my account. It is an administrator account and I login to User A for every thing I do on my computer. User B is an user account that I use. I don't use it for much of any thing.

    Today, I was looking at the file directories for user B. explorer to see what was in the directories. I found under the file directory Searches a file with the name, Everywhere. I clicked on that and there was a list of Outlook documents (I don't what type they are) that showed my emails addresses and files with the subject line of Outlook emails from Account A. User B has not used outlook.

    Why would user B have the email and these files from user A? How is this keeping data from one user account protected from another user account?

    If you need me to be clearer, ask away.

    Thank you.

    :)

    different user accounts, only one email address?


    Hi Geoff, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    In Windows 10 it is not possible to use the same MS account for more than one user account on the same computer. If User-A signs in with an MS account User-A@AnyEmail.com, that MS account (email address) cannot be used to sign in any other user than User-A. User-B needs to use either a different MS account or a local account. However, you can use the same MS account on multiple computers.

    There's no way to work around this restriction.

    In your case I would simply install Windows 10 on both computers with a local admin account, then create an additional standard user account as an MS account on both computers using the same email address. If any of the two computers requires the gaming account, too, as you explained I would make this account a local account.

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

    Lost User Account

    After upgrading from Window 7 to 10, I lost my wife's User Account got messed up, using my email address and login password, with no ability to change them. I received the reply below, but still have problems:

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with user accounts, we will help you to resolve this issue.



    I would like to inform that there can be only one Microsoft user account on one device, and that might be the reason you are unable to change the email address for the user account.



    I suggest you to create a new account (Local account) on your computer and transfer the content to newly created user account.



    Step 1: Creating a new user account

    • Type cmd in the Search bar form the desktop.
    • Now, Right-click on cmd.exe from the result and select Run As Administrator.
    • User Account Control or UAC dialog box will appear, click on Yes.
    • Type net user username password /add

      [Replace ‘username’ and ‘password’ with your desired username and password]


    Step 2. Copying old files to newly created User Profile

    • Go to C:\Users\(Your-Corrupted-
    • Copy all files except three files:

    • NtUser.dat

    • NtUser.ini

    • NtUser.log
    3. Go to C:\Users\(New-User-Profile-

    4. Paste all those copied files here.

    I tried to create a new user account as in Step 1, but when I put in the command as written above, I kept getting messages about correct syntax for the command. No matter what I tried, it wouldn't work. I
    then tried to set up a new account using the Settings/Accounts/"Add someone else to this PC" menu. I set up the account, but no folder was created under C:\Users\. I tried adding a folder using the new accounts user name and transferred the files from the
    other account. When I tried to log in, I received the same error message. I am at a loss as to how to get back the user account with the correct username, email address, and password. HELP!!!
