I bought a new computer for home. I sometimes take some work home, but mostly I want to write some Star Trek poems-from Spock’s perspective. My Mom says because it’s in her house, she has partial ownership too. I don’t want her messing up my poems while looking for new spaghetti sauce recipes, which by the way mom, the last one is still good.
Is there a way to keep her stuff separate from mine?
The best way to do this would be to make her a user on your computer. This way, she has her own place for her recipes, and she can’t mess around with your stuff unless she really tries.
This can be done pretty easily. First, you open the Windows control panel. Then click on “add or remove user accounts”. It will then ask you what you’d like the user account to be named, so something like “Mom” would work. It will also ask you what sort of account you’d like this account to be. Most people stick with making additional accounts as “standard users”. This is so the additional accounts cannot make a bunch of administrator changes to the system. Last step is to click “create account”.
