If multiple people are using your computer, then it is better to create user account for each one of them separately. Mostly multiple users are used in an office environment or at home. Using multiple accounts on a single computer has a lot of benefits, and among them is seperating your account settings and files.

net Localgroup Administrators username /add
net user username

Within our arsenal there is another method which is commonly used among the Windows users, and that is windows settings. This method is also easy but it is a bit time consuming so here are the steps.

To create a local windows 11 user account, under the other users click on add account.
Then a new dialog box will open where it will be saying how will this person sign in, by default Microsoft is recommending to use an email address or phone. However we are looking to create a local account, so you have to choose the other option which is I don’t have this person sign in information.
Step #4. Add a user without a Microsoft account
Again Microsoft is forcing us to use an email address or a phone number. So, basically Microsoft is forcing us to use Microsoft account for the user account. Right now you have to choose add a new user without a Microsoft account.
Step #5. Create a user for this PC
You have to fill the information for the user account that you want to create. There should be a username ,password and you have to answer the security questions. Basically there are three security questions that they will be asking you have to reply to all of them.
