    Unstable Taskbar after demoting account to Standard


    Hi all,

    In order to make my pc more secure I created a new Admin account, then I changed mine from Admin to Standard.
    However, now my Taskbar will crash and restart every time I click any of its icons, except for the Sound control. The Sticky note I have showing, crashes along with it, and a second later both reload.
    Fortunately it's not affecting other apps so far, it seems. Except for Files Manager. It crashes too.
    Just in case, I changed my account back to Admin. But the problem persists *Sad

    What should be my next step?

    Thanks guys *Smile

    :)

    Remove account


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

    Unstable Taskbar after demoting account to Standard

    I don't have an administrator account and i have two accounts and they are both standard account.

    Hi,

    As per your description, I understand that you have two standard accounts in your computer and you want to convert the account to Administrator account.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the standard account to administrator and check if it helps.

    • Press ‘Windows+X’ and go to ‘Control panel’.
    • Locate ‘User Accounts’ and click on it.
    • Click on ‘Change your account type’ and check the option
      ‘Administrator’ then click on ‘Change account type’.
    • Now your account will be changed as Administrator account.

    Please get back to us with an update on this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you
