Want an additional user set up on a Win 8 machine, but don't want to have a password or email associated with it. 


That way I can have an adminstrator account (with a password with total access) and an another account with limited access to not screw things up.  LOL


This way when Windows pops up to the sign-in screen, the other user can sign in without knowing the admin's password.


Could set that up very easily with Win 7, but it's driving me crazy not being able to figure it out with 8.  Arrrrgggg!!!!


And no, I'm not a pirate!  ;)

Create a local account in Windows 8 and don't enter a password. This will create a standard account like we know from previous versions of Windows. You should be able to just click on their account name to login without entering a password.
