You can delete a user's account when it is no longer needed. This reduces the number of users in the Manage Accounts window and on the Welcome screen, which makes those screens easier to navigate.

Deleting an account can also free up some disk space. When you delete an account, Windows 7 asks if you want to keep the user's files on the computer, including the user's documents, music, pictures, and video. If you choose not to keep those files, Windows 7 deletes them from the hard drive, thus freeing up the disk space they used.

Delete an Account

1 Display the Manage Accounts window.

2 Click the user account you want to delete.

The Change an Account window appears.

3 Click Delete the account.



The Delete Account window appears.

4 Click to specify whether you want to keep or delete the user's personal files.

NOTE

See the tip, below, to learn the difference between these two options.

The Confirm Deletion window appears.

5 Click Delete Account.

Windows 7 deletes the account.



Simplify It

My user account does not offer the Delete the Account task. Why not?

If yours is the only computer administrator account left on the computer, Windows 7 does not allow you to delete it. Windows 7 requires that there always be at least one computer administrator account on the computer.

What is the difference between the Keep Files and Delete Files options?

The options enable you to handle user files two ways:

  • Click Keep Files to retain the user's personal files — the contents of his or her Documents folder and desktop. These files are saved on your desktop in a folder named after the user. All other personal items — settings, e-mail accounts and messages, and Internet Explorer favorites — are deleted.

  • Click Delete Files to delete all of the user's personal files, settings, messages, and favorites.
