    Two local accounts are required, is this possible?


    I was asked to set up a new desktop which came with Windows 10 Pro 20H2, registered the owner with Microsoft and this allowed me to set up the local administrator account. But I also need a local user account.

    This is a group computer with everyone uses the same user account and same password. It is only used for browsing, printing, email and some simple games.

    Comments and suggestions are most appreciated.

    You can have a Microsoft account and a local account, but not two local accounts with the same name.

    It sounds like you have administrators set up and now you want a standard user account? See here:

    My thanks to you both. I managed to set up two local accounts, one Administrator and one user.
