CREATE A USER ACCOUNT

If you share your computer with other people, you should create a personalized user account for each person.

Windows keeps your personal files separate from the personal files created by other users. For example, your Documents, Pictures, and Music libraries display the files you have created. Internet Explorer also keeps your lists of recently visited web pages and favorite web pages separate from the lists of other users.
