    Cannot add new users

    Hello all,
    I made the jump from 8.1 to Windows 10. All user accounts and setting seem to have carried over nicely. However, I would like to add an additional account. In Settings->Accounts->Family & other users, there is the button for Add a family member and one for Add someone else to this PC. Both do nothing when clicked. There are no other error messages. I am signed in as an administrative account, and it is a Microsoft Account.

    Any ideas? Where I could go to get an error message? Chrome is my default browser, I've wondered if setting it back to edge would solve the problem.

    Thanks in advance!

    it seems to be a bug, had this same, added 2 different accounts, no error messages, no nothing, i had to reboot and they appeared. login worked too but it was too retarded of me to understand, that the password is blank by default - so on the first login, you need to switch password and for some reason, you cant use empty password - which i hate cause my kids are 3, 7 and 9 using that computer
