I have one computer at home. Can I have my name with a password and then my husbands name with his own password on main screen? We just want to be able to use this computer and only be able to get into our own page

Try this [for Win 10]...should be the same for 8.1 or win 7.

Set up family accounts on same PC

I tried this and got "We couldn't connect to Microsoft family right now, so your family on this device might not be up to date." note: I am not very good at all this programming,

It is not "Family Accounts" you need, it is "User Accounts" that you need to set up. Go into Control Panel and select "User Accounts" then "Manage another account" then "Add a new User". Give a Name and Password to set it up. You can also rename and add a password for the original account.
