  1. Administrator status Change from Standard


    I have been using Windows 10 since accepting the free upgrade from Windows 7. However due to a system crash caused by use of unauthorised software requiring the system to be rebuilt using only authorised software packets I discovered that my Administrator status was set at Standard and not Administrator as it had been in Windows7. I also discovered that I was unable to change it back to Administrator i.e. prevented. My question is why as I require to be able to see what other users are doing in order to prevent other similar crashes.

    :)

    changing standard account to administrative account

    Hi Kiran,

    These changes cannot be made with a standard account. Since you changed the administrator account to a standard one, you will not be able to make any changes that affect other users on the computer.

    If there is another administrator account on the computer, we suggest to login using that account and change your account to administrative account.

    Follow the steps below on how to change your standard account to administrative account:

    1. On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.

    2. Click on User Accounts in Large Icons View.

    3. Click on Manage another account.

    4. Click on the standard account.

    5. Click on Change Account Type and select Administrator.

    6. Click on Change Account Type button and restart the computer.

    Let us know how it goes.

  3. How to change the administrator to a standard account.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft community.

    I would suggest you to try these steps after enabling the Built-in Administrator Account.





    Step 1: Enable Built-in Administrator Account.

    a) Press Windows and x
    key together on your desktop screen.

    b) Click on Command Prompt (admin).

    c) Type: net user administrator /active: yes



    Note: Please follow the same steps and type
    net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    After enabling Built-in admin, please try with the steps below:

    Step 2: Try to change the account type of other accounts from Built-in Administrator Account.

    I would suggest you to try the steps under the section “Can I make changes to someone else's user account?” in the following article.

  4. Administrator status Change from Standard

    Account user mode changing issues.(Administrator/ standard)

    Hi,

    The User Account Control is a type of security that restricts unauthorized installation of apps and settings modification. You will normally encounter this notification if you are using a standard account. Since this is the issue that you have encountered
    on your PC, we would like to ask for additional information to help us provide you the appropriate solution. Please answer the following:

    • What command did you run when you changed the administrator account to standard?
    • Do you still have another administrator account that you can log into?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We look forward to your response.
