How to enable Windows 10 Guest account

Last updated on

In older versions of Windows, there used to be a guest account set up by default. In Windows 10, we need to run some commands in the Windows PowerShell to create a guest account.

Right-click on the Windows Start button and click Command Prompt (Admin) or Windows PowerShell (Admin) depending on Windows version.

Enter the following command to create a new user called Visitor:

net user Visitor /add /active:yes

Now set a password:

net user Visitor *

Press ENTER twice to create a blank password.

The following two commands will remove the Visitor account from the users group and add it to the guests group.

net localgroup users Visitor /delete
net localgroup guests Visitor /add

You can now log out of Windows and log into your guest account without a password.
