    Default Enabling Guest Mode In Windows 7

    PC Safeguard has been renamed to Guest Mode. Essentially Guest Mode disallows users to save files to locked drives & undos any file saved or changes made by this account upon log off. The Guest user account is different from Guest Mode.

    In order to do this, you will need to create a Standard user account. Once done, follow the steps:

    1. Control Panel –> User Accounts and Family Safety –> User Accounts –> Manage another account –> Select the account you want to restrict

    2. Click on Set up Guest Mode.

    3. Turn on Guest Mode –> Apply

    (Notice that the user picture now changes)

    4. You should now see the Lock drives (Advanced) option enabled.

    Clicking on it will show you a screen listing all hard-disk partitions with their current status of being locked or unlocked.

    5. Selecting the partition gives two options, that of locking or unlocking the drive.

    Upon choosing the drives you want the account to save files, you’re done.



    NOTE: The saved files will deleted upon log off.

    The user when (s)he logs on will be greeted with the following message, screen shot:

    The Guest Mode thus is not to be confused with Guest Account. Those who are familiar with SteadyState will know of the concept.
