Video: Sharing a public computer

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

On a public computer that may be shared with a hundred people, it doesn’t make sense to create individual Windows user accounts. In this case, everyone shares one user account. If you're the computer owner, you can restrict permissions on the account so users can access their email but can't make changes to the computer itself, like add or remove programs. The easiest and most secure way to access email on a public computer is through a web browser.
