    Hi, all! I'm writing because I have some doubts regarding some files and their administrative privileges. I'm running W10 Enterprise LTSC.

    To start, all these files are shortcuts and are located in the same folder:
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\+ Audio\+ Audio Plugins & Apps\Native Instruments\
    This folder is owned by Administrators (but all the contained icons by SYSTEM):

    Then I have this set of shortcut icons inside it, and all of them are shown as they already have administrative privileges but 2 (Native Access & Service Center):

    All of these apps are located in separate folders in C:\Program Files\Native Instruments, which is owned by "SYSTEM", but inside of this folder some subfolders are owned by SYSTEM, and some by Administrators (which is very odd because I installed all of them with the same user):

    SYSTEM: Absynth 5, Battery 4, Controller Editor, Massive, Native Access, Reaktor 6, Service Center.
    Administrators: Guitar Rig 5, Guitar Rig 6, Kontakt, Maschine 2.

    So, if Native Access, Service Center and Massive, i.e., are owned by the same owner, why is the icon shown in the first two? Also the advanced options are exactly the same:
    MASSIVE (no icon)

    NATIVE ACCESS (icon)

    If you have any clue, that would be really appreciated. I really hate the way W10 handles the administrative privileges. Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 PC not recognizing administrator privileges.

    Hi Jade,

    Damages within the components of your user profile can be one of the possible reasons why you are experiencing an issue with using its administrator privileges. To troubleshoot this concern, we suggest creating a new admin user profile. To be able to create
    a new administrator user profile, you would need to enable the built-in administrator in your Windows 10 device.

    To enable the built-in administrator account, follow these steps:

    • Using Search type CMD to open the Command Prompt. Right click on CMD then choose Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Yes.
    • In the Command Prompt window, type net user administrator /active:yes and then hit the Enter key.
    • You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out the user profile you are currently using, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice on the login screen.
    • Using the built-in administrator account, create a new admin user profile.
    • Log into the new admin user profile.
    • Check if the same issue persists.

    Note: The built-in administrator account has more privileges than a regular administrator account. Privileges that can easily generate a conflict on your system. We only recommend enabling the built-in administrator account for troubleshooting purposes and
    you have to disable it once you are done.

    To disable the built-in administrator account, access the Command Prompt with administrator privileges. Type the command
    net user administrator /active:no and then hit the Enter key. The built-in administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen.

    Update us with the results.
