Limited accounts privilages

  Rhuddlan 22:30 10 Dec 2003

Just wonderning about limited accounts on win xp home edition, why is it that limited accounts users can't play on any games, for example my daughter has to log onto my account to play on The Sims and when she's on my account she changes her's to the administrator, surley limited accounts must have some decent privilages

She should be able to play. Just not install the games.

Control panel, User Accounts, User Account Types will tell you the subtle difference between Limited User and Admin accounts.

Do you mean she doesn't have an icon under her account to play the Sims or does the system prevent there playing it?

If its missing icons you can copy them by right clicking the Start Button and choose "explore all users" Then move / copy icons about the Start Menu trees as you see fit.
