Well there's dumb for you??

Had setup 3 user accounts in Win 10 - me as admin, plus 2 as normal accounts.

As me logged in, Win 10 Settings > Accounts > Email & Accounts, could access the other 2 accounts and change them to Admin accounts if I wanted to make some settings changes. Then back to Normal accounts.

Did an in-situ upgrade to Win 11 .... and now Settings > Accounts > Email & Accounts > none of the other 2 accounts are now listed??

Activated the Win 11 Administrator account, still no user accounts listed (me or other 2)

De-activated Administrator account.

In Win 11 went to the (old) Control Panel > User accounts ... all accounts are listed, me as Admin account, others as Normal account. Can change other accounts if required.

But they are still not listed/accessible through the Win 11 Settings > Accounts > Email & Accounts.


Forget it, I'm stupid. I promise not to touch a computer again.

That's because you are looking in the wrong place. 'Email & Accounts' lists the email addresses (if any) that the account you are currently signed in as is using. These are used for the Mail app, Calendar, etc.

To see all other user accounts on this PC you should look at Settings > Accounts > Family & other users. You can add new accounts here too.
