  1. Local account to administrator


    Hello all,

    Somehow, I've set up my laptop as local account instead of administrator *Redface*Redface

    Unable to make changes as I don't have administrator rights.

    I'm the only user on this PC, is it possible to change local account to administrator?

    Do you want to make changes to this PC only shows "NO" there is no "Yes" selection.

    I don't have rights to do a factory reset (which I'd rather not do)

    :)

    How to revert local account to administrator acc.


    Hello. I am not sure I understand the question. Let me see:

    • You had an administrative account (local, not MS).
    • You changed this administrative account to a limited account.
    • You want to change the limited account back to an administrative account.
    • You have another administrative account, but you don't know the password.

    Is this correct?

    You must be logged into an administrative account in order to give administrative rights to a local account.

    Does another user of the computer know the password to the administrative account?
    Did you create a password reset disk for the administrative account?

    Local account installation question


    I'm fairly certain that Skip this step was available in 10.0.130 - the workaround in Step 20 (back button) is no longer required.

    The currently known, as of 10.0.130, ways to create a Local account sign-in are
    • Skip this step at the MS account creation phase
    • No Internet connection during the install
    • static IP (post# 2 by Fragment) - New (to me anyway)
