Can you describe your problem in detail?
When did this issue start to occur? Before the issue happened, did you do any modifications?
If you can't add new users to your PC settings, try the following options:
- Add a new user in the User Accounts
Open the Run dialog using Win + R, then type control userpasswords2 and click OK to open the User Accounts dialog.
Select the Users tab, and then click the Add button. If the Add button is grayed out, check the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" option.
This way you can add a Microsoft account. If you want to add a local user, click the Sign in without a Microsoft account (not recommended) link and then select "Local Account" on the next screen.
- Add a new user with Command Prompt
Open a Command Prompt as administrator
Type net user <username> /add and press Enter. Note: Replace the <username> with your desired user name. This will add a new local standard account on Windows 10.
If you want the added user to be an admin account, type net localgroup Administrators <username> /add and press Enter to promote the standard user to an admin account.
Hope above information can help you.
