How to create new user and set the privilege for this account on windows 8?
Since 3 of my family share the same computer, and I hope I could keep their privacy from each other.

The short version:
Create a new user

This should open up to the
Add another user

Once you've finished adding the new user, open Start and search for
Select the user you would like to change
Click on the account you would like to modify
Change account type
Manage another account
You should return to the following screen, select
The process for creating local (non Microsoft Live) accounts is the same as in Windows 7, for the most part. You can link accounts to Live at a latter stage as well if you want.
My preferred way to add accounts is through the Computer Management.
Open it by typing
Expand "Local Users and Groups", right click "Users" and choose "New User."
Fill out the form, click create. You will have a new user that has no Admin rights. If you want to muck around with group for permissions, etc. you can do that from this console as well.
If a local account: 1. Click on user. 2. Click on "Change the account type". 3. Make sure that it is a Standard user.
If Microsoft account: Not sure about here. Just testing.
