    Apologies for the NEWB question - but it occured to me that while I'm all setup on my XPS, I'd like to get a guest account setup for anyone that might need to use my laptop.

    Being a returning user to Windows after a bit of a break - can someone give me a hand with creating a guest account?

    There was report that Guest account has security risks.
    Win 10 has no option for guest account.

    Why setup a guest account anyway ?
    Just setup a regular standard account with no admin rights.
    Of course, your own admin account has better have a password and requires password to log in.
    That way, your "guest" has no chance to mess with your computer.

    Right-click on the Windows button and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    Click Yes when asked if you want to continue.
    Type the following command and then click Enter:
    net user Visitor /add /active:yes

    Press Enter twice when asked to set a password. This will create a blank password for the account.
    Type the following command and then hit Enter:
    net localgroup users Visitor /delete

    Type the following command and then hit Enter:
    net localgroup guests Visitor /add
