How to access

You can access the User Manager by clicking on the User Manager icon in the Control Panel, or by clicking on 'Users' in the 'Site' menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation.


In this screen you have the ability to look at a list of your users and sort them in different ways. You can also edit and create users, groups and access levels.
