    Unfamiliar Accounts listed in This PC shortcut.

    Before I discovered the correct way (through Personalise the desktop) to get a shortcut to This PC, I created a shortcut to it.

    I discovered, when clicking on the shortcut's Properties and then on the Security tab, the accounts in this screenshot:

    However, in User Accounts there is only one:

    screen 5.png

    Now that I have created a shortcut to This PC through Personalise, right clicking on the icon's Properties opens up the System window.

    What was the significance of the other accounts in the first screenshot - especially the Unknown one ?
    Equal rights for equal responsibilities.
    Equal opportunities for equal abilities.

    If you don't like avatars, don't allow them: switches here Thread Display Options > Visible Post Elements.

    I love avatars, and am fortunate that I don't have that affliction.

    But for those who do, they may be induced into a seizure before they have a chance to set the switches.

    It's a simple matter of awareness.
