    How to stop Local User to view the documents of Admin Account


    I have two users in Win 10. First is My Self an Administrator and second one is a Local User. In Computer Management I stopped sharing of My Self Folder. It is showing now "not shared". In C drive user folders, I clicked My Self Folder and clicked stop sharing but even than Local User is able to view My Self Documents and Desktop etc. Please advise.

    Sorry, I am late. Yes Cereberus gave me solution in my thread in software and applications. I do not know how to give link so following is his solution. You can also search in soft and apps forum

    If that is not the issue, change your folder permissions to only allow youself read/write access. May need to remove 'everybody' from permissions list.

    Many guides how to change permissions (see 8.1 guides if you cannot find a specific 10 guide - method has not changed).

    Sharing rights are for external access via the network - not for other users on same pc - they are governed by permission rights.
