I had a guest account set up in Windows XP. Is there any way to do this in Windows 7?

Good question, Carl! Are you expecting any house guests this summer? Well, what if they want to use your computer and you’re a little paranoid of any potential damage they could cause?

The solution is to enable your Windows 7 Guest Account!

Here’s how!

Simply hit Start, and in the Search Box type “Guest Account” and hit Enter. This will put you in the Manage Accounts window. Click the Guest user icon.


Now click Turn On in the next window.


Ta’da! Your guest account is turned on and your visitors can use it!

If you want to turn it back off, just repeat these steps!

Who knew it could be so easy?
