    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. I don't have an administrator account and i have two accounts and they are both standard account.

    Hi,

    As per your description, I understand that you have two standard accounts in your computer and you want to convert the account to Administrator account.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the standard account to administrator and check if it helps.

    • Press ‘Windows+X’ and go to ‘Control panel’.
    • Locate ‘User Accounts’ and click on it.
    • Click on ‘Change your account type’ and check the option
      ‘Administrator’ then click on ‘Change account type’.
    • Now your account will be changed as Administrator account.

    Please get back to us with an update on this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you

    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.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue to assist you further.
