    Windows 10 no longer offers a Guest account to share your PC, but you can create a restricted account to emulate that kind of functionality.

    The concept of a guest account isn't a bad one: a locked-down account that you can let other people use on your PC to access the internet, run apps, and not much more all while keeping your files, settings, and everything else safe (in theory). But when Microsoft rolled out Windows 10, the Guest account disappeared.
    You can enable it in a number of ways, but there's no Guest account to use. In fact, if you manage to turn on the account, it won't even show up on the sign-in screen.
    However, the elements needed to create a guest account are still present in Windows 10, which makes it possible to create your very own restricted account to let guests use your PC. It just take a bit of user assembly.
