How to Add user in Windows

If you are using a Windows computer and your family members are also using it, then it's better to have multiple accounts for each user. This way all the family members will have their own account with their own data. 

Another reason why you should create a new user is to not use a local user account for daily activities rather than using the administrator account. Why? This is a security measure as to keep your system safe. When you are using an administrator account you can do any changes on your system.
