The Various Account Types offered by Windows 7
According to the Windows 7 help team, Windows 7 offers various levels of permissions, which are determined by different account types. With various account types that are controlled effectively, accessing a Windows 7 PC becomes a cakewalk, no matter the number of users. Lets see what all are the different User Account types offered in Windows 7.
Standard User Account
As the Windows 7 help team says, a Standard User Account in Windows 7 can use most softwares and alter system settings in such a way that they do not affect the working of other accounts or the security of the system.
As you might be well aware, an Administrator account has complete access to and control over a computer. The exclusive privileges of the account enables the administrator to make any desired changes in the system. However, based on the notification settings of the system, administrators may be asked to provide their passwords or confirmation before making changes that may affect the accounts of other users.
As the Windows 7 help team says, the Guest Account is primarily intended to serve the needs of persons who temporarily want to use the computer.
However, while granting access to someone who is not well versed in Windows, it may cause more harm than good, especially while browsing the web or so. Hence it’s advised that you designate such users as Standard users. This ensures that any harmful software is not installed on the PC, as any such action mandatorily requires administrative rights.
The above account would surely prove helpful in setting up various user accounts on your Windows 7 PC.
