Applying A Password to the Guest account

Posted in Windows XP by Community Submission

The default for the guest password in XP Home and Pro is BLANK...there is no password. I have been told by many even MicorSoft Reps that applying a password is not an option. Well they are all wrong. Listed below is the how to info.

To apply a Password to the guest account:

  1. Please log on to this computer with an Administrator account and turn
    on the guest account.
  2. Click Start->Run->Type cmd and click OK.
  3. Input the following command and press Enter. Net user guest password
  4. Go to Control Panel->User Accounts. Click the Guest account and now you can change the password.

Thats does work for I have done it many times.
