    Once the Control Panel is open, find the "User Accounts and Family Safety" section, and in that section, click "Add or remove user accounts".
    Once you click it, you will be presented with a new window. In this window, there is a list of all of the user accounts. You can remove or disable all of them, except for the one that you are currently logged into.

    For example, the first user is logged in as an Administrator, so we cannot remove it right now.
    We can disable the guest account and delete "VisiHow", the standard user that is not currently logged in.
