You might like to explore this:
Open a RUN box (Windows key + R)
Enter: “control userpasswords2” (without the quotes!)

I think that works in both Win 7 and 10, and probably 8.1.

That lets you control what users can log in without passwords, and such.

I tried to set up a second user on the 10 test box here, and found I had to have an email address for the user, supply full name, date of birth, and so on. And, the password for that account has to be known to Microsoft — which I assume gives them to hooks to log in to my computer at any time. And we worry about Google tracking us :-)?

Maybe you need to expose more information about Cathy to Microsoft before she is allowed to use their computer that is in your house.
