    I just got a Nexus 10 and one of the main reasons was the multi user facolity. Howeverd am trying to set up multiple users. The manual states - Add, modify, or delete users go to Settings > Devices > Users. However when I try this there is no option for User. The last item listed under device is Apps.

    Can you tell me how I go about adding multiple users.

    its under settings-->Users

    add user will be on the top.

    Edit: FYI:update your OS to 4.2.1. it was not enabled initially. the update will enable it.

    I'm having the same problem. There is no option for "users" in settings or anywhere that I can see in my new Nexus 10 (has 4.2). It ends with Apps, and does not show users. I've been searching everywhere to figure out the issue, and have not found any help. Does anyone know what needs to happen to get multiple users (beyond factory reset)?

    How do you update the OS to 4.2.1? I check for updates and it says "system up to date" -- however, it's sitting at 4.2. Is this just a matter of waiting for a bit for it to be available for my tablet?

    You should be able to go into settings, go down to and select 'about tablet' and a menu should come up with a system update option. You need a wifi connection to check and update. Then to add users, select 'users', an option of 'add user' should appear on the top right of the screen.

    Hi all

    I had exactly the same issue on a nexus 10 ie, no user option on 4.2 but system stated that it was up to date.

    I just left it a while and the 4.2.1 update popped up, now all worked fine and the add user process worked
