    In this section, you can enable a Guest account by clicking on "Guest" and then clicking "Turn On"
    .
    If you enable the Guest user, people who do not have an account can use the Guest account to log in to the computer.

    Now, you can name the account and choose whether you would like to create a "Standard User" or an "Administrator"
    .
    The difference between these two is that the standard users can not affect other users or the security of the computer, but an administrator can. For the sake of the tutorial, I'm going to create a "Standard User" and name it "VisiHow". Click "Create Account" when you are ready.
