Chapter 7. Sharing Your Computer with Others

If you share your computer with other people, you can create separate user accounts so that each person works only with his own documents, programs, and Windows 7 settings. This chapter shows you how to view and create user accounts, log on and off different accounts, change a user's name and picture, and delete accounts you no longer need.

In this chapter you also learn about Windows 7's new homegroup feature, which makes it easy to share documents, music, photos, and other files with people on your network. You learn how to create a new homegroup and join an existing homegroup.
