Add The User Accounts Utility To Control Panel

We're all different In the way we access the Windows environment when booting up our computer. Some of us prefer to secure It with either a Microsoft or Local User account, whilst others simply want to go straight Into the operating system without any form of authentication. Wouldn't It be great, If  you could have the options accessible In Control Panel? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add the User Accounts utility to Control Panel.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. Unbeknownst to many users of the Windows platform, Is a hidden User Accounts utility that allows you to perform a number of administrative tasks such as creating Microsoft
and Local User accounts, removing an existing login password, manage saved credentials and the list goes on. Here's a visual of what to expect when accessing the utility.

You'd be surprised that It only takes a single command to access It, namely control userpasswords2, that can be entered (for example) Into the Command PromptPowerShell or the Run menu.

It's not always convenient having to execute commands, thus I will demonstrate how to add the User Accounts utility to Control Panel, by using a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and apply the User Accounts utility to Control Panel thereafter.

I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:

One you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add To Control Panel.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

The User Accounts utility, has now been added to Control Panel, so let's access It by opening the Run menu, entering control panel and hitting OK.

Step Four:

Upon selecting Large Icons via the drop-down menu, as you can see, the User Accounts Admin utility has been successfully added. This Is totally different from the default User Accounts, that's also located In Control Panel.

Step Five:

Just to make sure It's functional, I've clicked the link and as expected, the User Accounts utility has executed. A perfect result!

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove the User Accounts utility from Control Panel, simply double-click the Remove User Accounts.reg file, and click Yes.

Final Thoughts:

As mentioned toward the beginning of this article, there are a number of ways to access the User Accounts utility, but this requires a few steps as well as a command, which Is not always convenient. Having It readily available In Control Panel, certainly simplifies the process.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
