User accounts that are not a member of the Administrators, Users, or Guests group do not appear in User Accounts in Control Panel. There's seldom reason to set up an account that doesn't belong to one of these groups, but if you do need to work with such accounts, you must use one of the other user account management tools . For details, see "Using Other Account Management Tools" on page 562.
Assigning an appropriate account type to the people who use your computer is straightforward. At least one user must be an administrator; naturally, that should be the person who administers the computer. All other regular users should each have a standard user account. Use a guest account if you have guests or occasional users; that way, they can use your computer without gaining access to your files . For more detailed recommendations, see "Effectively Implementing User Accounts on a Shared Computer" on page 560.
