problem installing updates


I recently installed Linux Mint 10 onto my desktop PC and when I installed it it said I could create user accounts at a later time. I was tired so decided to be lazy and add them later but now i can't find out how to do it. Can someone please tell me where to find it?



I am trying to edit this post because I put the wrong title on it so if anyone is confused I am sorry. The proper subject should be adding user accounts.

You should at least leave a link to Google. That's better.

Ha ha right? If your menus are on the top left of your desk top because you have Gnome try (System> Administration> Users and Groops>. Linux Distros are not all that creative with their menus so yours is most likely similar.
If you go to (advanced) in editing I think you can change your post name.

theKbStockpiler is right, your post was not helpful & a bit unfriendly, especially to a fellow newcomer (that seems to be buttonsbabies's 4th post).

Better to have posted a link to a search, suggest some search terms, or even ask -- politely of course -- what searches OP has already tried.

Thank you.

@buttonsbabies there is a lot of documentation on your computer, they'll be in your file manager under /usr/share/doc/ to me they're quite difficult to understand for a newbie(myself included), but, we look forward to assisting you here at LQ.

Open the "Menu" on the left side of the taskbar and in the search bar on the bottom type "add user" and "Users and Groups" will pop up in the search results on the right hand side of the menu (easiest way to get there). Click on "Users and Groups" and you can add new user accounts from there. You can find all these types of apps in the "Control Center". You'll find it listed in the Mint menu on the left hand side.
