Hello,If you're talking about

Hello,

If you're talking about using the Cisco Configuration Professional (Cisco CP) GUI, then you click on Configure at the top and then open Router, then Router Access, and under User Accounts/View create or modify a user. Just be aware that if you try to modify the user you're currently logged into the GUI as, it will show you a warning that you can't do that...

You can also add a user from the command line of the router itself using, for example, something like
     username Admin privilege 15 secret heresthepassword
and that will create a new user named Admin with all privileges on the router and encrypt the password heresthepassword in the running configuration. Then you'll be able to use that username/password combination in the GUI. (If you don't care if the password is encrypted in the running config, you can simply replace the keyword secret with password.)
