Gain administrator rights
The most important thing is to gain administrator rights, as these are vital for implementing such changes because without it, you cannot make certain changes to your computer or its settings. If it is your computer, then gaining administrator rights will not be a problem for you and it will just ask you to authorise for complete access.
Go to control panel
Now, you should go to the Control Panel which is beneath the ‘My Computer’ option. Double click on it to open. Now you should look for the ‘user accounts’ in the control panel. There will be dozens of options; thus you must not get confused and go through these carefully. If you have multiple user accounts in your system, then you must identify the account to which you can apply password protection. In the user accounts, you will be displayed the names of all accounts that are being run on the computer.
Choose the account and apply password
Now, you must select the account and find the option ‘set password’. You should click on it to set the password. Here, you must think of a password that no one can think of other than yourself. You should now enter the password in the spaces provided to you. Remember that you will be provided two spaces to enter the same password and both of these should match.
Check if your password is working
You must restart your Windows and check if the password protection is working properly.
