  1. Changing Admin on new laptop


    So i just received a new laptop and when I was setting up the microsoft account for the new computer I created a new account thinking it would be no issue. However, now the new account is the admin account on the computer and I have no idea how to remove it even though I have another microsoft account that I can easily transfer admin status to.

    :)
