  1. Why Isn't There an Option to Login as Administrator?


    A week before, I signed out as an Administrator in my personal account. Now I for some reason am now unable to sign back in as Administrator. I tried cmd prompt, restart, and nothing changed. So any help is appreciated.

  2. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

      • Click on Advanced options.

      • Click on Startup Settings.

      • Login to Microsoft Account and create a new administrator account.
