If you share your system with other people, it is always best to set up a guest account so that people won’t have access to your data. I will address this tutorial and show you how to set up a guest account on Windows 11 systems. You can use two ways to create a guest account, and I will walk you through both methods, and you can choose whichever method you find most convenient.

You can set up the account using Command Prompt or the Settings app. Just follow the methods below:
