I just purchased two new Dell computers, which are set up side by side on one LAN, one for me and one for my wife. When setting up my wife's computer, it could not create a new user account because mine already used the same email. To my alarm, the wallpaper and start menu tiles from my computer appeared on my wife's before I began to set it up, and changes made on her computer appeared on mine.
I want to be able to create two separate accounts, each able to read the family email, but with different wallpaper and screen settings, different start menu arrangements, and different account names, pictures, and independent passwords. In fact, I want multiple user accounts on each computer with privacy for files between users. I had all this on XP. How do I get it on W8?
Thanks for your attention.
