Omni-Solutions Tech-Trick #1048
“Tech-Trick” of the day: Today we are going to talk about the different user accounts on a regular PC, or laptop. Every since Windows XP, Microsoft has had several types of user accounts that have different permissions (power to read, write, and execute files on your system). They are the “Administrator” (with a capitol A), your “Super User”, and a “Limited User” accounts. Each one serves its purpose on your system. When you first open a computer out of the box it needs setting up and it lets you create a new user. By default this new user is in the Administrators group and is called a “Super User” which means it has the ability to make other accounts and has Admin-like permissions on the file system. Microsoft recommends that after you login for the first time, that you create a “Limited User” or “Normal” user to browse the internet and use your “Super-User” to install software and other important stuff. We are happy to explain further but the tech trick of the day is to create a limited user and use that for browsing the internet and doing regular work such as word processing etc. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
