  1. Chrome is able to install without administrator privileges


    What the hell? My younger sister has a low level profile on our laptop, and even after saying no when the prompt asks for the administrator password, the installer says “Google Chrome can be installed without administrator privileges. Continue?”. You click yes and it fucking installs. Not to mention I chose for not being able to install programs from outside the Store. It clearly isn’t working, as it shouldn’t even prompt for the password.

    I’m annoyed.

  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. Windows 10 PC not recognizing administrator privileges.

    Hi Jade,

    Damages within the components of your user profile can be one of the possible reasons why you are experiencing an issue with using its administrator privileges. To troubleshoot this concern, we suggest creating a new admin user profile. To be able to create
    a new administrator user profile, you would need to enable the built-in administrator in your Windows 10 device.

    To enable the built-in administrator account, follow these steps:

    • Using Search type CMD to open the Command Prompt. Right click on CMD then choose Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Yes.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type net user administrator /active:yes and then hit the Enter key.
    • You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out the user profile you are currently using, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice on the login screen.
    • Using the built-in administrator account, create a new admin user profile.
    • Log into the new admin user profile.
    • Check if the same issue persists.

    Note: The built-in administrator account has more privileges than a regular administrator account. Privileges that can easily generate a conflict on your system. We only recommend enabling the built-in administrator account for troubleshooting purposes and
    you have to disable it once you are done.

    To disable the built-in administrator account, access the Command Prompt with administrator privileges. Type the command
    net user administrator /active:no and then hit the Enter key. The built-in administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen.

    Update us with the results.
