  1. Accidentally changed my only Administrator account to Guest


    Hello,As the subject suggests, I accidentally changed my only admin account to guest today. The account is also my Microsoft account, and I don't have any other accounts on my computer. So I ended up with only a guest account and can't use my laptop to its full potential. Since I'm not the admin anymore, I can't simply make a recovery or create a new admin account. I'm really desperate. What should I do in such case?Thanks

    :)
