Give yourself or others login privileges on your Windows computer at IU

At Indiana University, to give yourself or others login privileges on your Windows computer, first set up your computer to join the IU ADS domain; see Configure your Windows computer to connect to IU's ADS domain.

You can then add anyone who belongs either to that computer's domain or to a domain that has a trust relationship with your computer's domain.

To add a domain user as a user on your computer:

  1. Log in as an administrator or as a user in the local Administrators group.
  2. Navigate to the Control Panel.
    Note:
    For help navigating, see Getting around in Windows.
  3. Open User Accounts. Click Manage User Accounts, click Change account type, and then click Add.
  4. To locate the account, click Browse and select the account when you find it. If you know the account you want to add, type the username, and enter ADS as the domain.

    The account receives Standard user rights by default.

  5. Click Finish. ADS accounts added in this manner will appear in the list of user accounts. Users in the list of user accounts will be able to log into your computer using their IU ADS username and password.
