Create Local Users in Windows XP
How can I create Local users in Windows XP? How can I open the Local Users applet (from Control Panel) in Windows XP?
To control local users and some of their settings from a Windows XP Pro machine you can use the LUSRMGR.MSC MMC Snap-in (run lusrmgr.msc from the Run command).
Alternatively, you can use the User Accounts applet in Control Panel.
To open only the User Accounts applet without going to Control Panel, open the Run command and type
This applet (along with the LUSRMGR.MSC MMC Snap-in) should only be used for local user administration. Also, note that these apps are not agailable in Windows XP Home Edition.
