How to add a user account to a Windows 11 PC

This article will show you how to add user accounts to your Windows 11 (Home edition) system. Basically, the steps are not complicated and have many similarities with those in older versions of Windows. As follows:

First, open the Start menu and click the gear icon to access the Settings Window app. Alternatively, you can also use the Windows + I keyboard shortcut to open the Settings app directly without clicking through the menus.

Access the Settings app

On the Settings screen that appears, click on the Accounts item from the list on the left.

Click on Accounts

Next, from the respective options menu that appears on the right, click on the Family & other users option.

Now, in the “Other users” section, click the Add account button.

Click on Add account button

You’ll need to enter data for your new Microsoft user account, including things like how to sign in, a username, an email address, and more.

Add user's information

It’s all as simple as that! Note that the PC needs to be connected to the internet when you do these setup operations.

Now that you have added a new user account to your Windows 11 PC, log out or restart the computer. When you return to the login screen, you’ll see the other accounts you added. They are located in the lower-left corner of the screen.

Accounts available

Click on the account you want to sign in to and provide the corresponding credentials. Again, keep in mind that your computer must be connected to the Internet. Otherwise, you will not be able to activate the account. Instead, a message will appear with the following content:

In related news, Microsoft said that users running the Pro version of Windows 11 will be able to create local accounts, but we’ll get to that later.
