How to use Deepin 2014 Guest account

Deepin 2014 ships with a guest user account, but you’ll need to enable it before you can use it. It took me a while before I figured out how to use it.

This short tutorial shows how to enable and use it, if you are still trying to figure it out yourself.

It’s a simple, 4-step process: 1. Log in with an account with administrative privileges; 2. Enable the guest account; 3. Log out; 4. Log in as a guest user.

That’s the text version. Here follows a version with screenshots.

1. You are already logged into the system as a user with administrative privileges. So open the Control Center and click on the User Accounts module. Click on the Guest account tab.
