This is the main account on the system and configured to be an administrator account by default, but it is not the only one that is created during that process.

Windows 10 creates two additional user accounts automatically which are both inactive by default.

The first is a guest account which Microsoft designed for users who access the device but don’t have a permanent account on it.

Guest accounts are severely limited as it is not possible to install software or hardware, or modify system settings.

The second is the administrator account. It is also inactive by default and needs to be enabled before it can be used. While not required at all, it is often used for troubleshooting or administrative purposes when it is enabled.
