Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Log in as a guest
\015 MY daughter let me barrow their laptop to do a special project for a job interview I have on Monday..They have not picked up my phone message yet. my son in law has a password...I do not know it to get started on my work ...so how can I recerse the user to a GUEST like my desktop has, so I can get started? I cannot figure out how to do this? Please help!!thks,Dee\015
How many users does this laptop have? Hopefully one should have no password. You can use the one without a password. If your files are stored in the other user, you can remove the password through the user you might be using now... all you have to do is go to the User Accounts Settings, click on the user which is password protected, and select remove password. That should do the trick! f the laptop only has 1 user, then good luck, 'cause I can't find the correct solution! But I hope this helps!
Hey there, if they do have a guest account, at the log on screen, press ctrl,alt delete 2 times then type in the user name guest with no password. If not, let me know and mayb we can try something else
