    Windows Search and keeping Accounts separate


    I’d like to set Windows 10 up so that the personal files of one account are not accessible from the other accounts (at least not without the passcode), either by navigating to the relevant folder in windows explorer (ie going to the relevant hard drive, the users folder etc) or by conducting a search in the search bar by the Windows button. Can anyone walk me though how to do this please?

    Each user has their own separate copy of the library folders (Documents, Videos etc) which are protected from being accessed by other users by their permissions.

    Are you concerned about other files and folders outside those default library folders, perhaps on a 2nd disk or separate partition?
