    Local Account Administrator appears as Standard


    Hi there,

    Maybe this is totally normal, but I'm not quite sure why it works this way.
    In the Win10 panel, the account shows as administrator, in the old control panel it looks different:

    Basically, my account which is the administrator appears as a standard account.
    Perhaps this is the explanation?

    changing standard account to administrative account

    Hi Kiran,

    These changes cannot be made with a standard account. Since you changed the administrator account to a standard one, you will not be able to make any changes that affect other users on the computer.

    If there is another administrator account on the computer, we suggest to login using that account and change your account to administrative account.

    Follow the steps below on how to change your standard account to administrative account:

    1. On the desktop, press Windows key + X and select Control Panel.

    2. Click on User Accounts in Large Icons View.

    3. Click on Manage another account.

    4. Click on the standard account.

    5. Click on Change Account Type and select Administrator.

    6. Click on Change Account Type button and restart the computer.

    Let us know how it goes.

    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open
      Command Prompt.

    • Type the following command and hit Enter:

      (Check for the spaces)
    4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.

    Step 2: Follow the below steps,


    • Type User Accounts in the Search box from the desktop and select
      Change the User Accounts.

    • Here you will be able to see all the user accounts on your computer.
