After Windows Vista™ is installed, the administrator or a user with administrator rights can create additional user accounts. For example, you may want to create additional user accounts so that more than one person can access the computer and have their own settings and access permissions.
To Delete A Windows Vista User Account
- Click the Start button located in the lower-left corner of the Windows Vista desktop.
- Then click on Control Panel.
- In the Control Panel, click on User Accounts and Family Safety.
- Then click on User Accounts.
- Now click Manage another account.
- If you are prompted for a password or confirmation, enter it or provide confirmation.
- Now click on the user account you want to delete.
- Then click on Delete the account.
- Windows Vista will ask if you want to keep or delete the user's files.
- Make your decision and then click on either Keep Files or Delete Files.
- Then click on Delete Account.
Note: If you are the computer Administrator, you can not delete your own account without first creating another Administrator account. Depending on which version of Windows Vista you have, additional options may be available. Options may vary if your computer is connected to a domain.
