How do I set up a 'Guest' user (log in) account on Windows 8?


With other versions of Windows, I was able set up different user(s) accounts. I would like to have 'Guests' use a different log in account and not have access to my private and confidential passwords and files.

I tried to set up a different user account, using the 'Help' in Win 8 but it does not show up at the log in page. The only account visible is mine and when I go into the PC settings, there is an account listed as 'Guest'. I am completely baffled and frustrated at this point. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
