    Hello Ado, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Local Users and Groups is not available in the Windows 8 (core) edition. It's only available in Windows 8/8.1 Pro and Enterprise editions.

    Local Users and Groups Manager - Open - Windows 7 Help Forums

    What were you wanting to do? Perhaps there's a workaround to do it.

    It sounds like you are looking in the wrong location for your C:\Users folder instead??

    C:\Users\(You User Name)

    Is this what you are hunting for?

    Users in your Computer Management window is not available in your edition of Windows 8 since it's part of Local Users and Groups which is not available in the Windows 8 (core) edition. It's only available in Windows 8/8.1 Pro and Enterprise editions.

    Sorry, but no since it's not included in your edition of Windows.

    What were you wanting to do in Local Users and Groups (Users)? Perhaps there's another way of doing it.
