History of Windows Since 1985
I am writing this message as a suggestion to devote a website to the various versions of Windows along with a description of major additions and improvements of one build over its predecessor from the original Windows (release date 11.20.85) up to and including Windows 10 (release date 07.29.15). A lot of changes have happened since Windows first appeared in 1985 and from time to time I will think about the evolution of and the countless changes to the program that single handedly revolutionized personal computing as we know it today. Just the change in size of programming code from way back then to now is mind boggling! I remember getting a new computer with a 60 MB (Yep, MB) hard drive and how I was envied by co-workers. We thought a 60 MB storage drive would be more than enough to meet any future needs. Nowadays, some office documents and many stand alone apps are that size and greater. Microsoft has every reason to brag on its accomplishments and contributions to the tech industry in just over 30 years. Displaying these events would not only be of historical importance but perhaps an educational tool as well. A virtual tour and perhaps enabling online access to functional prior operating systems would be interesting to young and old (Yes, I'm on the "old" side). Anyway, you folks are more than talented to come up with the best way to exhibit this idea to share with the world. Maybe its been discussed before but if not I just wanted to encourage a thought process to consider its viability. It could also be an excellent tool to market Microsoft into future generations. In any event, congratulations to Microsoft and its employees for past accomplishments and best wishes for continued success! Thank you for your consideration in this matter, your time and talent! God bless all of you and yours, and bye for now, Paul

If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. In the left pane of Microsoft Management Console, click Local Users and Groups. If you don't see Local Users and Groups, it's probably because that snap-in hasn't been added to Microsoft Management Console.

I want to know if my User Accounts (local and Microsoft) will migrate "as is" from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I seem to recall having to monkey around with the user accounts to get them strait from the upgrade form Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

User tiles for other users on the computer might not be present in the currently logged-on user's Temp folder. For example, if User A creates User B through the User Accounts Control Panel item, User B's tile is created in User A's Temp folder when Windows sends User A to the Manage Accounts subpage.

If you're using Windows 10, version 1803 and later, you can add security questions, as you'll see in step 4 under Create a local user account. With answers to your security questions, you can reset your Windows 10 local account password.

The User Account Control (UAC) is a security feature in Windows that has been in use in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Vista, and the operating systems to which the Applies To list refers. UAC enables you to stay in control of your computer by informing you when a program makes a change that requires administrator-level permission.
