    Does the windows user account with admin level has the same “power” as the built-in administrator?

    For example, in the screenshot below, “ali” user account is set to be with admin level. Doe “ali” has same power as the administrator account with no one single difference?

    Is this the same in Windows and windows server?

    My admin account switched to a user account!


    The first of the many diagrams in this thread show that the link Sign in with a local account instead is displayed for the account that is currently logged on and so the reversion procedure might work for this account. For normal circumstances, that would initiate the conversion back to a local account for the user account currently logged in - see my 23rd & 26th September 2016 posts in revert to local account from one converted to MSAccount. I have no way of knowing how Windows will react to an attempt to use this procedure for the Built-In Admin account and I do not know if that link Sign in with a local account instead will be displayed or not.

    I think I side-stepped this issue by suggesting that that
    • An extra password-protected Admin level account is created, and
    • The Built-In Admin is disabled, and
    • The recovery attempt focuses on whichever existing user account remains active afterwards.

    Personally, I would reinstall Windows 10 without even attempting this recovery. Installation takes very little effort once everything is backed up and the only necessary user interactions are right at the start & right at the end so it can be initiated before making a pot of tea. It took about 30, 60 & 90 minutes for each of my computers [the 30 minuter is 6 months old, the 60 minuter is 7 years old, 90 minuter is 12 years old].

    Raner - I am trying to avoid sounding like I am nagging you into doing a clean install.
    • Once you have recovered the existing user account you can attempt to re-enable & remove the MSAccount link from your Built-In Admin if that link appears in Settings, Accounts.
    • Bree says it cannot be done and I think the same but I have never tried - I have never been able to get to Settings using the Built-In Admin because it cannot run any Windows 10 Apps so I do not know how it can be done [but the diagrams in Bree's link shows that those users got there].
    • Even though I have the safety of having created two spare password-protected Admin accounts I would not want to know that my Built-In Admin was sitting in the background but unable to help me if my other accounts were corrupted.

    Remove account


    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:
      Code:
      net user test /del

    You have not posted a screenshot of the Settings, Accounts, My family & other animals list or the list of folders within C:\Users\... so we do not know the whole story.

    You will also need to use a set of net user commands, such as Net user Garcia-1, to identify your user accounts so start with Net user on its own and then work through each user name it lists. {Ignore these user accounts - Administrator, DefaultAccount} There is some guidance on interpreting the results in section 1 of If the Admin prompt has a greyed out or missing Yes button but no password entry box, use the Built-In Admin account in Safe mode to create two new Admin accounts - Wiki The username listed by the Net user command should normally match the user folder path with C:\Users\... but this is not true for accounts that were created as local user accounts and only later converted into MSAccount-linked user accounts.

    By the way, in the picture you showed above, Administrators [plural] is a red herring and nothing to be worried about. Administrators [plural] is a group of users - all those accounts with Admin-level status belong to this group.

    You have obscured the email addresses in the usernames so we here have no way of knowing whether or not the two user accounts are linked to the same MSAccount. Even if they are, they will have different folder paths within C:\Users\... If you have difficulty deciding which user account is related to which user folder then find out using the command prompt command wmic useraccount list full in combination with the RegEdit entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList.
