    if you did this correctly the following screen should pop up. To the left click Local Users and Groups>Users you will be displayed with the following screen. Here will be a list of local users on your device. By default > Administrator/Guest & Default accounts will be disabled. To enable either of these first you must set a password. right click and click set a password.
