Accounts allow several people to quite comfortably use the resources of one PC, since they provide the ability to separate user data and files. The process of creating such records is quite simple, so if you have such a need, just use one of the methods to add local accounts.
There are two ways to create new users in Windows 10, using the command line or using Windows settings. Let's start with the simplest method.

It is important to mention that to create and delete users, regardless of the method you choose, you must log in to the system as an administrator. This is a prerequisite. All these methods make it easy to add new accounts in Windows 10 and do not require special skills, which makes them accessible even for inexperienced users.
