We’ve always found the family features and settings from Microsoft to be rather complicated and not so easy to understand. However, in Windows 10 things changed, and they changed for the better. For starters, adding a child account to your Windows 10 PC or device is a lot easier than it used to, in previous versions of Windows. A few clicks or taps, a few settings to be made, and your child can use your Windows 10 computer, safely and on your terms. Let’s start this guide in which we’ll show you the proper way to add a child account in Windows 10:

Here’s how it’s done:
In many cases we are not the only users of our computers and devices. Whether you have a little brother or a little sister, or one of your grandparents wants to experience the new world of technology, because they are not familiar with these devices , they could cause a real damage to your operating system. For this situation and for many other circumstances Windows 10 allows you to create a separate user account for each user, so that each has their own files, settings and apps.
