  1. I've restricted myself from being an admin


    I used the "netplwiz" tool in the run tool and was poking around with the different ownership names. I saw "Administartor" at the top and thought, "that is a boring name". Quickly, i saw the title "device owner" and selected this thinking i was not lose any tools; and here i am. I am unable to activate myself as an admin in the family and users setting, nor does the computer managment or "regedit" command work, as every time i am told i did not have the admin feature to do so. Someone please help me out!

    :)

    I've restricted myself from being an admin

    Admin restriction

    I installed a game on my son's Win10 computer. He has a user account and I have an admin account. The shortcut is in the public desktop. Everytime he clicks on the shortcut in his account its asks for the admin password. I looked under the properties/shortcut/advanced
    and the "run as administrator" box is not checked.

    Is there somewhere else I need to go to remove the restriction on this program?

    Thank you
