  1. Changing the administrator users account without deleting its data


    hi,

    my dad recently bought a new computer and i got the one we were using for my room.

    My dads Microsoft account is the administrator - meaning his email address is displayed in the lock screen and in many other places.

    I would like having my own Microsoft account as the administrator but without deleting all the settings and the files/folders that are in the current administrator account. How do i do that?

    Thanks!

    :)
