There are many ways you can create a guest account in Windows 11. We will show you two of the easiest methods. So without further ado, let's get started.


Creating Guest Account from Settings

1. To start off, open Settings on your Windows 11 machine by pressing the shortcut Windows + I.

2. Now, find Accounts on the left sidebar and click on it.


3. Click on Family & other users.

4. Here, you can add a guest account by clicking on the Add account option.

5. Once you click on Add account option, you will get a pop-up to sign in. But we don't need to sign in through a Microsoft account since we are creating a Guest account. So, click on "I don't have this person's sign-in information." (Now, it will let you create an account without adding any details of the guest).

6. Click on the "Add a user without a Microsoft account" option.

7. Add all the details like the Name, Password, and Security questions for the guest account and hit next.

Now you have successfully created a Guest Account. If you find this method a bit lengthy, try the next method.
