A8. Operating System Accounts

Separate user accounts not belonging to the administrator group should be created for day-to-day use for each user.


The IT Support Centre will assist you in creating user accounts in Windows and Macintosh operating systems. If you use a different operating system, consult the help files that are provided with your operating system for guidance on how to create a user account.

In some departments it may be necessary to contact your ITAdmin Representative to create a user account.

Additional Information

Accounts that are part of the administrator group should only be used for activities such as:

  • installing and configuring software;
  • changing system settings; and
  • setting up other accounts.
