Windows 10 Tutorials 23 – Account Types

Welcome to our Windows 10 tutorial series.

We will be spending time walking you through the ins and outs of Windows 10.

A look at the two of the most common account types available for users in Microsoft’s operating system.

Your user account is associated with the specific user profile that you have set up. This is what defines you when you log into a computer using Windows 10.

It sets up your Start Menu arrangement, the colors and various UI design elements, how the tiles are arranged, where you files are saved as well as your SkyDrive cloud storage details, among others. If there ever was a list of most important things in Windows, a user account would be right up top.

User accounts can be managed from the Accounts section in Settings.

We’ll be taking a look at this new section in detail in upcoming tutorials, but it is worth noting that Windows 10 provides several options for user accounts — two of them, the more common ones.

First of these is the local account, and the other is a Microsoft account.

Businesses, organizations and enterprise users go beyond this two, and can set up their own special types of accounts. These are usually created by the network administrator in a company, but these are more elaborate ones suited for corporate use.

We’ll go over the two of the more common account types in the next tutorials.
