How to Add or Remove Accounts Settings context menu in Windows 10

information   Information
You need a user account to use Windows, and if you share a single PC with other people, each person should have their own account. Each person can customize their account with their own settings and preferences, like a desktop background or screen saver. User accounts also help control which files and apps each person can use and what changes they can make to the PC.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove an Accounts Settings desktop context menu for all users to quickly view their info, email & app accounts, sign-in options, family & other people, and sync settings in Windows 10.

While you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove the Accounts Settings context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu.
