Guest and Admin ACCOUNT on pc

Hi!

Normally, I have heard that there is one admin and there may be a number of guests. But is it possible that we may use more than one admin on a single PC.

My reason to ask this question is because guest account usually asks for admin password for the usual work like printing etc. I want the distribution to be done in such a way that both the accounts work like admin in some way. Is this possible?

This solution is for stand-alone PC, not connected to any domain.

For Windows 7 or Vista, to create an administrator account:

  1. From the start menu, select control panel.
  2. Select Classic View in case Category View is selected.
  3. Look for User Accounts, double click User Accounts and click Manage User Accounts.
  4. Click Create New Account. Enter any name for example, printacc and then click next.
  5. Click Computer Administrator, and then click Create Account.

For Windows XP:

  1. From the start menu, select control panel
  2. Select Classic View in case Category View is selected.
  3. Look for User Accounts, double click User Accounts.
  4. Click Create New Account. Enter any name for example, printacc and then click next.
  5. Click Computer Administrator, and then click Create Account. .

The account created will have administrator privilege and will not ask for password in case you login with this account.

Hi!

Try to create multiple user accounts for each user.

With user accounts, you decide whether to make this account a "Standard User" or an "Administrator". Standard User would be able to perform the same features as that of an Administrator but with limited access to system settings while an Administrator has complete access to these system settings. Standard Users has a privileged to access more features that Guest Users. Administrator has complete access and can change system settings compared to that of Standard Users.

You would just have to decide who would be given Administrator accounts and Standard Accounts. You can also opt to give all users Administrator accounts.

To add an administrator, you have to right click on My Computer and click on Manage. Expand the Local Users and Groups heading. Click on Groups and double click on Administrator. Click Add, to create new administrator. Create a name for it and apply the changes made.

With this, you can have multiple admin accounts.
