    Admin Rights switched to Standard User


    Win10 Pro Ver. 21H1 I recently changed my logon password and somehow (probably being careless) have disabled my Administrator Rights and switched the system to Standard User. Now of course the UAC is preventing me from opening apps, various sites, Power Shell (Admin) or deleting anything I have installed. The system logs on OK and boots normally and apart from the above, all is normal. I got as far as the Advanced Security Settings for Local Disk which showed all items as Allowed and Full Control then gave up. Some guidance to revert to the original config will be appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Allow Standard User run application as admin

    we have a shortcut that is calling a .exe file that requires admin rights by the UAC. I would like to be able to run the application without any admin rights or give the standard user admin rights only to this .exe. What we have done and failed.

    1. Application properties >> security >> Advanced >> Permissions >> Full Control

      to local group A (which includes the user) and user by them self.
      1. Gave ownership of folder to local Group A.
      2. I looked in Regedit and I see the user, and they have full control for that application.
      3. have checked run as admin and unchecked too.
        We do not want to use /savecred because of security risk. What other steps can we take to find a solution.

    admin rights keep disappearing!?!!

    Hi guys,

    I am actually having a problem at work that our IT department hasn't been able to figure out. I am supposed to be a member of the admin group. We are on a domain. The problem is that everytime I reboot the computer I loose my admin rights(no longer in the administrator group) and just become a normal user again. I have tried googling this and didn't get to many results.
    I believe IT is just giving me local admin rights, not admin rights for the whole domain.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: It is on Windows XP Pro.

  4. Admin Rights switched to Standard User

    Standard user allow to change time

    Hello,

    I suggest you to change the account type from Standard to Administrator and check if it works.

    Here are the steps:

    Login to your Admin account.

    In search type User Account and hit enter.

    Click on Manage another account.

    Select your Standard user account and click on change the account type.

    From this page select Administrator and click on Change account type.

    After doing this switch user from Admin account to Standard user account and try to change the date and time.

    Hope this works.
