Windows 10 – Can’t add Another User

If you are having trouble adding another user to your Windows 10 computer, there could be a few reasons why. Here are some possible solutions to try:

1. Check your account type: Make sure that you are logged in as an administrator account. Only administrator accounts have the ability to add new users.

2. Use the Settings app: The easiest way to add a new user is through the Settings app. Open the app and go to “Accounts” > “Family & other users” > “Add someone else to this PC”. Follow the prompts to create a new user account.

3. Use the Control Panel: If the Settings app isn’t working, you can also try adding a new user through the Control Panel. Open the Control Panel and go to “User Accounts” > “Manage another account” > “Add a new user in PC settings”. Follow the prompts to create a new user account.

4. Check your network settings: If you are on a network, make sure that your computer is connected to the network and that you have the necessary permissions to add new users.

5. Check for updates: Sometimes, issues with adding new users can be resolved by installing the latest updates for Windows 10. Go to “Settings” > “Update & Security” > “Windows Update” and check for any available updates.

If none of these solutions work, you may need to seek further assistance from Microsoft support or a professional IT technician.


Hopefully, one of these solutions was able to help you add another user to your Windows 10 computer. If you continue to experience issues, don’t hesitate to reach out for further assistance. Good luck!
