  1. Administrator Privileges


    How can I get administrator privileges for my Microsoft account on my PC? I went to setting - accounts - and there is no "Family/User Options" to click on to put my microsoft user name as an administrator. I need to download apps and the PC is blocking me on some of them saying I am not an administrator.

  2. Dell Touchpad uninstall administrator privileges

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    From the description of the issue, I understand that you are unable to uninstall drivers from Device Manager as it prompts saying log-in with administrator privileges, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    I would recommend you to see if you are logged in administrator account, if not then enable it. Please follow the below steps to enable:

    Step 1: I would suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account.

    You need to run the command from an elevated command prompt. To do that follow the below steps:


    • Press the Windows key + R from the keyboard to open the
      Run Command Dialog Box.

    • Type cmd and right-click on the
      Command Prompt
      result that should appear.

    • This opens a list of options at the bottom. Select
      Run as administrator
      .

    • Accept the UAC (User Account Control) prompt.

    • Enter the following command to enable the hidden administrator account:
      net user administrator /active:yes

    Hope it helps. Feel free to contact us for any assistance on Windows Operating System, we will be happy to help you.

  3. Never prompted to elevate privilege as administrator


    OK, I tried Dinesh's tutorial. First, here's a list of accounts for my machine:


    Administrator Privileges [​IMG]


    I held down Shift and rebooted, and got the WinRE splash screen. I was prompted to log in, with "Dan" my only option:


    Administrator Privileges [​IMG]


    If I clicked on "Don't see your account", I got this:


    Administrator Privileges [​IMG]


    Is it suggesting that "Dan" is an administrator account? Oh, that it were so... I went back, selected the "Dan" account, and it booted into command prompt. I then attempted the first of Dinesh's instructions:


    Administrator Privileges [​IMG]


    Hello darkness, my old friend... "Access Denied."

    Hi James,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    From the description of the issue, I understand that you are unable to take full ownership of the files and folders.

    I would recommend you to see if you are logged in administrator account, if not then enable it. Please follow the below steps.

    Step 1: If this issue is confined to all the files and folders in your computer then,

    I would suggest you to enable the built in administrator account.

    You need to run the command from an elevated command prompt. To do that follow the below steps:


    • Press the Windows key + R from the keyboard to open the
      Run Command Dialog Box.

    • Type cmd and right-click on the
      Command Prompt
      result that should appear.

    • This opens a list of options at the bottom. Select
      Run as administrator
      .

    • Accept the UAC (User Account Control) prompt.

    • Enter the following command to enable the hidden administrator account:
      net user administrator /active:yes


    Step 2: If the issue is confined to particular folder or file then follow the below steps.

    Use the following procedure to fix this as long as you don't reboot your machine:


    • Sign-in as an administrator on your computer.

    • Navigate to the folder where you're having the problem. Right-click and select
      Properties from the pop-up menu.

    • Under Properties | Security tab, click the
      Advanced button, then click "Change" owner on the
      Advanced Security Settings dialog (if you are already the owner, do this step anyway!), and in the resulting dialog enter whatever you want the owner to be

    • Now a new check-box appears labeled "Replace owner on sub-containers and objects"; check it.

    • Also check the box at the bottom "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object."

    • Make sure under the Permission entries grid that your current account has Full control (if not Edit or Add your account to be listed with foll control). Finally hit
      Apply. This may take a while.


    Hope it helps. Feel free to contact us for any assistance on Windows Operating System, we will be happy to help you.
