Sharing a computer with other people can be a huge pain in the butt sometimes. The other users can mess with all of your settings, delete your files, download and install programs you don’t want installed and cause other havoc. In these cases it is best to either have them buy their own freakin’ computer or create a new Windows user account for them.
[adblockingdetector id=”2″]Creating a new Standard User account for the extra people using your computer would solve most, if not all of your issues when sharing a computer. When the other users log into their standard user account you have created for them they will not be able to delete your files, mess with your personal system settings or install any software. They will be able to use any programs already installed on the computer, access the Internet and save their own files to their personal login account.
When creating a new user account you will be given two options, create a Standard User or an Administrator. Please note, an Administrator account will have full access to the computer and the person that has access to this account can cause chaos on your computer. A Standard User account has full access to the Internet and all programs installed on your computer but has very limited access to settings that can mess up your computer.
