    If you're using Windows 10 on a shared device, you may find it useful to create multiple user accounts. Each user can then organize and manage their own personalized settings and applications and keep their files separate from those of other users. You can create a new user account by using an existing Microsoft email address or can create a new email account directly via Windows 10. FREE ACCESS

    User accounts allow multiple users to keep separate files, applications, and settings on the same Windows 10 device. Once signed into Windows, you can move from one user session to another without having to sign out beforehand--meaning that each user can keep their documents and applications open while someone else uses the device.

To do this, you need to choose one of your photos and then draw three gestures containing circles, straight lines, and taps on the screen with your finger or cursor. Your selected image and gestures will become your new picture password. FREE ACCESS

    8.  Setting up assigned access in Windows 10 (Fall Creators Update)
    3m 37s
    While Windows 10 doesn't offer guest accounts, you can use Assigned Access to limit a user's access to a specific program. This is useful for children or guest users because it ensures that they'll only have access to the program that you assign to them. You can set up assigned access by activating the setting, choosing an existing user account to apply the restricted access to, and restarting your device so that the changes will take effect. The result from the perspective of the user is a simple kiosk-style device with a sign-in window that redirects them to the application that you've made available. FREE ACCESS
