For security reasons, Windows 10 logs in as an administrator account by default and does not have a guest account turned on. However, for those users who only need to browse the web or check email on their computer, it is necessary to enable guest accounts for them. The guest privileges or account can be turned on by the following two methods. 1.
1. Enable guest privileges through system settings
First, we can enable temporary access for guests using the System Settings method. Go to Windows 10 system “Settings→Accounts→Family and other members”, then click “Add others to this computer” to add a visitor account, and then select “Set assigned access privileges Then select “Set up assigned access” to set up permissions for visitors (Figure 1).
2. Use the system command to open a guest account
In addition to the above method, we can also use the command modification method. Start the “Run” box and run the command lusrmgr.msc to quickly enter the “Local Users and Groups” settings window, and you will see all types of user accounts in the right pane, with the Guest account present (Figure 2).
Double-click the Guest account to bring up the Guest account settings window, remove the check mark before “Account is disabled” and click “OK” (Figure 3). Finally, log out of the current account and re-enter Windows, you can see the account selection on the login page.
Tip: Once your client is not using the account, remember to disable it in time because it will increase the insecurity of your system.
If the Guest account still does not appear on the login screen after opening the Guest account, you need to locate the “Computer Configuration → Windows Settings → Security Settings → Local Policies → User Rights Assignment” in the Group Policy window, and in the right pane, remove the “Deny local login “In the right pane, remove Guest from the list of properties (Figure 4).
If the system does not have Group Policy usage rights, you can use the following command to set it up.
NET USER MYGUEST /ADD to add a new account named MYGUEST.
Use the NET USER MYGUEST * command and set the window password when prompted.
Using the NET LOCALGROUP USERS MYGUEST /DELETE command to remove the MYGUEST account from the General Users group.
Use the NET LOCALGROUP GUESTS MYGUEST /ADD command to complete the addition of the guest MYGUEST account. After that, you can see the added MYGUEST guest account in the login screen.
