  1. User account permissions...


    Purchased a new PC - ran the initial setup routines and set myself as (sole) user. Also set with NO password/local account...

    However, when I right-click-run-as-administrator an exe file or shortcut to run a programme I always recieve a pop-up asking if I want to make changes to this PC *Sick

    Each of my 2-other W10 machines behave as 'normal' and run as admin immediately...

    Not a major issue - just irritating and puzzling *Shock

    Ideas out there?

    User Accounts / Permissions Issue


    My PC shows only two user accounts, both designated as "Local Account, Administrator, Password Protected". One account (this is my "personal" account) has my name as user. The other account's user name is "Administrator". Neither account has full elevated permissions, which prevents me from managing many things I would like to control.

    I understand that an Administrator account with full permissions must be used in order to change a user from "Standard" to "Administrator".

    Regardless of how much research I have done and how many instructionsI have found on the Internet, nothing I have tried has worked to locate or create an Administrator with full permissions that would allow me to change my personal account to Administrator.

    I am hoping that you can walk me through the steps I need to follow so that I end up with full elevated permissions on my personal account.

    Thank you,

    Remove account


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

    User account permissions...

    User account permissions need resetting.


    I've converted my administrator account to a standard user account and created a new administrator account.

    As a standard user I am able to access the admins user folder which I should not be able to do. There must some issues with the permissions somewhere but I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting it.
    @fdegrove has already suggested running an acl.bat as detailed here, post #39 Is a standard user account necessary for tight security and home user? - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums

    but it has not fixed my user permissions.

    Has anyone got any ideas?
