    Windows is over protecting with its nonsense. I am the only administrator/user of my own PC yet Windows 10 does not recognize me, sounds very stupid yet it is happening; why?

    adminstrator rights as sole user

    Why am I told I do not have administrator rights and thus cannot open desktop downloads, move files etc.? I am sole user of this newly bought PC using Windows 10 and Outlook 365. Please can you give me a step by step idiot's guide to solving this silly
    problem? This is a domestic, single user PC. Thank you.

  3. Windows 10 Administrator's Permission Needed. I AM THE ONLY USER!

    Hi Quinton,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern that you are unable to play the game Civilization IV Gold Edition after upgrade to Windows 10, we will help you with this issue.

    Please do let us know the following information to understand the issue and assist you better:

    • As you have already created new user account, have you tried to log-in with that account and access the game?
    • Is this issue confined only to the specific game?

    I suggest you to try few of the below steps and check if it helps:

    Step 1: I suggest you to check the number of user accounts created on your laptop and also to ascertain the administrator account.

    • Press Windows + R key together on your desktop screen.
    • Type netplwiz and hit Enter.

    Step 2: Enable Built-in administrator.

    I suggest you to enable built-in administrator account, try to log-in with that account and access the game to check if there is any issues with the current user account.

    • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt.
    • Type the following command and hit Enter: net user administrator /active: yes
      (Check for the spaces)
    • Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.
    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done.

    Hope it helps. Try the above troubleshooting steps, reply to the post with an updated status of this issue and required information. We will be happy to assist you accordingly.
