    Hello there,

    I'd like to know if I need two separate Windows 10 licences if I want to use one PC but with two different A/D accounts. The background is that my company wants to give every employee one account with and one account without admin rights.

    Thank you for your help.

    As long as you have Windows 10 Pro, you can have as many accounts as you like.


    Now, if this is a company, then that computer will also need either a User cal or device cal. As you're the 'same' user, you can have two accounts but that's a grey area that someone might be able to update on. Another method would be to allow staff access to the LOCAL admin account (full privs) for changes, then the locked account for domain connectivity.

    Another way would be to supply each staff member with ONE locked-down account, but when you DO wish to do something, you'd be prompted for admin rights. There's your second account setup on the domain.

    no problem with win 10 os. Now you may have a licensing problem with other software. be sure to read the license of all other software that is shared.
