    Using accounts for added security

    can I set up two accounts in Windows 10 linked to the same email account. (One admin and one general) and if not can I set up an admin acct with no email account and a general linked to an email account ?

    This is so I can mostly use the general account but if a Nasty gets in and tries to change anything I will be alerted by the request for permission. I've been using this system on vista and would like to set up 10 in the same way. Of course it was simple in vista because user accounts didn't need email or Microsoft accounts then.

    When I tried to link a second local admin account to the same email account on the same PC, I got no warning or error, but the local account is still a local one. I hope this info will be helpful for you to make decision.

    PS: there is no problem to set up two Microsoft accounts but you have to use different email accounts.
