It is very easy to create multiple guest accounts for guest users under Windows 11 / 10 / 8.1 / 7, or Windows Server by using command lines!
It is not only possible to set up additional guest accounts quickly under MAC / Linux, this solution is very easy to create multiple guest accounts under Windows 11 / 10 to Windows 7 / XP, as well as on Microsoft Web Server 2019, 2016 until retrospectively under Server 2003.

To do this, open / start the existing cmd.exe or start a program Windows Console program, such as the ColorConsole .
In this example, guest accounts Gast-001 to 003 are created, because Windows creates a new user as a standard user when creating a new user, so this must be added to the guest group and also removed from the standard user.
Create the user account "Guest-001" to "Guest-003"
net user "Guest-001" /add
net user "Guest-002" /add
net user "Guest-003" /add
Overwriting of user accounts cannot occur, because an error message appears when entering existing user names! ( ... see image-1 point 1 )
Add to guests group "Guest-001" to "Guest-003"
net localgroup guests "Guest-001" /add
net localgroup guests "Guest-002" /add
net localgroup guests "Guest-003" /add
"guest-001" to "guest-003" delete from the standard guests group
net localgroup guests "guest-001" /delete
net localgroup guests "guest-002" /delete
net localgroup guests "guest-003" /delete
( ... see Image-2 )
These commands NET commands are quite practical, because you can use them under all operating systems, for example --- OS_Windows6 --- this of course refers to Windows NT systems, there are certainly similarly powerful commands under Linux, Android and MAC OS, with which you can achieve the same thing.
