  3. Click the Add button  below the list of users.


     

  4. Click the New Account drop-down menu, then choose Administrator.

  5. Enter the name tests where you see 'Full Name'.  The 'Account Name' underneath will be generated automatically - you don't need to change anything in the Account Name box. 


     

  6. Enter a password for this new user, then enter it again to verify. It is recommended that you use the same pasword that you already use to login to your computer. Finally, enter a password hint to help you remember the password.
