If you are thoughtfully worried about the security of your children in the digital online computer world, you are not supposed to miss the opportunity of improvements offered by the operating program which is most important for household use of computers known as Windows Operating System.

Windows Operating System has its own parental control system installed for home use and you can customize the program for each and every user of computer at your home with customized setting and options.

You can find it only on computers running with Windows Vista or higher to have configured different accounts for every user.

Types of User Accounts

There are two types of basic user accounts on Windows mentioned below;

1. The user with Administrators privileges has the permission to install and uninstall anything.

2. The Standard User is without permission to change any of the settings that can affect your computer's security or other users.

Steps to Make Standard User Account

First of all, you can access the configuration of user accounts from ‘Control Panel’. To open the Control Panel, you reach the button 'Start' at bottom left corner with the Windows logo and when you see the options panel, click on 'Control Panel' to open.

A window will open with many shortcuts to various configuration tools and you are required to click on an icon titled as 'User Accounts'. Now main configuration panel will appear where you can see the accounts that you have discharged opens.

If you only have one account, it has to be 'Administrator'. Before creating a 'Standard' new user account, you restrict access to user 'Admin' using a password.

Now the first thing you will click on is 'Create a password for your account’ and follow the instructions to create it. In this way, you will prevent other users to be allowed to come into your account of Administrator. From now on, whenever you enter your user account, Windows will ask for the password to enter.

Now you we can create 'Standard' account and you begin by clicking on 'Manage another account'. It asks you us to grant permission to continue and you will reach the panel where all accounts you have on your computer are visible. No click on 'Create an account'.

Having typed the name of account, confirm that the 'Standard User' is selected by clicking ‘Create Account’.

Now you return to the panel which shows different accounts and see there is a new one with the name you typed. Clicking on it takes you to a panel where you make the restrictions for Standard user with desired options.
