How to add and remove Users in Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 16.10

Today we are looking at how to add and remove users in Ubuntu 16.04.  The method is very similar for all versions of Ubuntu.  Please follow the video, for a visual guide and you will find written instructions below.

Go to your System Settings, and inside it, you will find a category called User Accounts or Users.  Then in the top right corner, you will see a unlock/lock button, click on it and enter your password when required.  After that, you will in Ubuntu 16.04 see a plus and minus button under your user accounts which you will use to add and remove users.  In Ubuntu 18.04 the lock button will become an add user button.  Enjoy!
