    Hello Egkua, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You can use an option in the tutorial below to do so. If you don't have the Pro edition of Windows 8, then you'll need to use OPTION THREE since the other options are not available in Windows 8 core.

    Shawn,

    Thank you for the reply. I am using windows 8 not pro version. However when using option 3,
    netplwiz, it is menioned this "This snapin may not be used with this edition of Windows 8. To manage user accounts for this computer, use the User Accounts tool in the Control Panel".

    The problem is I also can't find User group Administration under the control panel.

    Option Three in the link above is for using an elevated command prompt instead.
