Make a Guest account for comany, Help need RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all,

    My problem is that i want to create a thypical account for a company with limited permissions, but i dont know how to do that. The most part is that when guest uses the computer then he would not be able to install something, use adult content websites and mostly wont harm the computer(format etc...). What is the best way to do it, i've heard of Local Group Policy, but it seems too difficult for me. 

    Thank you

  • You can put your user in "power users" group , the following is the capability of the power users :

    Power Users can do these things:

    1. Create local user accounts (they can create user accounts in
    Power Users and Users groups but not in Administrators group)
    2. Modify user accounts which they have created
    3. Change user permissions on users, power users, and guests
    4. Install and run applications that do not affect the operating
    5. Customize settings and resources on the Control Panel, such as
    Printers, Date/Time, and Power Options

    Power Users cannot:
    1. Access other users' data without permission (they can not take
    ownership of a file unless that permission is specificaly granted to
    them, Administrators can take ownership of any file on the computer
    anytime they like)
    2. Delete or modify user accounts they did not create

    So if you have files under an Administrator account, Power User can not
    touch them and can not find any way around.


    1. first type " lusrmgr.msc " in the run, a new window will be open

    2. then right click on the user that you wanton select "properties"

    3. click on "member of " tab 

    4. choose "Add " 

    5. Type "Power Users " and click " OK " 

    Now the users is member of Power users
