    Administrator account works, other one has problems


    I upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 in summer. Have had many problems. Now the major one is: Windows 10 works fine in administrator account, but in the other user account I primarily use, most of the apps don't work (including store --Cortana and Edge are about the only ones that do. Clicking on the others does nothing, and the app store has disappeared from the task bar). Help, please

    :)

  2. Administrators

    There is only one kind of administrator... one can't overrule the other one. If one of them has more access/control than the other, then the other one is probably not an actual administrator-level user account (it is not a member of the administrators group).

    If the other one truly is an administrator-level, then you can go to the Settings > Accounts page to remove the one you don't want.

    Can't switch input methods for Japanese Microsoft IME

    One thing that I found out is that the administrator account only works with Japanese. I use two other accounts on my computer for my work while I don't use the administrator account for anything. The two accounts have the same problem as OP while the
    administrator works perfectly. I'm not sure why this is.
