User Account Management (Administrator & Standard User) - Free Online Tutorial
It seems like administrator user is the host of the computer, while others are guests. However, it’s more secure to operate the computer using a standard user account than administrator account. Why?
Why use a standard user account instead of an administrator account?
The standard account can help protect your computer by preventing users from making changes that affect everyone who uses the computer, such as deleting files that are required for the computer to work. We recommend creating a standard account for each user.
When you are logged on to Windows with a standard account, you can do almost anything that you can do with an administrator account, but if you want to do something that affects other users of the computer, such as installing software or changing security settings, Windows might ask you to provide a password for an administrator account.
How to create an user account?
Now go to "Local users and groups" which you can find at the left side of the computer management window. Then go to users, now you can right click on any empty area to create an user account which will create a standard user account by default.
But, if you want to make it an administrator account, double click on the particular user name and go to the member of tab and click add button. Now type "administrators" in the box and click check names, then click OK. This procedure will add the particular user to the group called "Administrators". This gives the user account the administrative privileges.
