Re: how to create a new User Account on Domain based Windows 7

You must be an Administrator to create an User account on domain based Windows 7 computer. Further, you can only create local user accounts, which give people access to your computer but don't give them access to the domain. To do so, just follow these steps:-
  • Go to Start Menu and type mmc, press Enter.
  • This will open Microsoft Management Console.
  • If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  • In the left pane of Microsoft Management Console, click Local Users and Groups.
  • Click the Users folder.
  • Click Action, and then click New User.
  • Type the appropriate information in the dialog box, and then click Create.
  • When you are finished creating user accounts, click Close.
  • Thats it..

If you don't see Local Users and Groups, it's probably because that snap-in hasn't been added to Microsoft Management Console. Follow these steps to install it:
  1. In Microsoft Management Console, click the File menu, and then click Add/Remove Snap-in.

  2. Click Local Users and Groups, and then click Add.

  3. Click Local computer, click Finish, and then click OK.
