Admins & User Settings

Ok so im the administrator of my PC and i want to create an account for someone. But i dont want them to be able to browse my documents and files and personal stuff.

Is there a script or some program i can use to disable browsing of my (Admin) files on my PC? I keep my work and all that junk in my documents and some of it is non of their business.

Hello Collin,

You could create a "Standard" or "Guest" user account for them to use. While they are logged in to their account, they will not be able to open anything in your C:\Users\(user-name) folder by default.

If you have files and such on another drive or partition that you do not want them to be able to access, then you could set it's permissions to "Deny" only their specific user account.

Hope this helps,
