16.5. The Guest Account

Actually, Administrator and Limited aren't the only kinds of accounts you can set up on your PC. The third kind, called the Guest account, is ideal for situations where somebody is just visiting you for the day. Rather than create an entire account for this person, complete with password, hint, little picture, and so on, you can just switch on the Guest account.

Figure 16-11. The Shared Documents folder contains files that you're welcome to open, read, and copy to your own folders—stuff that other people have wanted to "publish" for the benefit of their co-workers. You can think of it as sort of a wormhole connecting all accounts. Everybody has full access to everything inside.
