  1. windows 10 home: prevent visitor account from accessing removable drives


    I first tried this but unaccountably, usbstor.inf had "add" grayed out so I then tried adding the group policy editor which is missing from home.I added that feature, created a visitor account no password andused MMC to add a local policy for "visitor" that had "deny" for all removable storage.However, when I sign in using the visitor account I can still access USB flash drive. Did I leave something out? Unfortunately, I cannot upgra

    Visitor account printing

    I set up a visitor account using Windows 10 and instructions I found online and it went well. How do I provide access to printing on this visitor account? Also, other programs I might have such as SnagIt? Thanks!

    Create a Limited Visitor (Guest) Account in Windows 10

    Create a Visitor account with very limited privileges in Windows 10, similar to the Guest account which was available in previous versions of Windows. A Visitor account is a local account for users who don't have a permanent account on your computer or domain. It allows a user to access your computer without having access to your personal files. Users signed in to the Visitor account cannot install applications, open Windows Store apps, install hardware, or change Settings.

    The Guest account as we know it from earlier versions of Windows can no longer be enabled in Windows 10, but you can get past this by manually adding a Visitor account.
