    Windows Local Admin Authorities


    I am setting up my small business and I'm trying to setup 5 Windows PCs in our office, one of which I am trying to setup local admin authorities to have over the other 4. I'm well aware of how to setup local users/admin on the same PC... but spread out among 5 different devices, I'm not so sure.

    Does anyone know if this is possible.. and the steps for doing so ??

    If not possible from Windows desktop, can it be done from MS 365? We have a family share plan.

    Or possibly an app that can be downloaded that will give me these capabilities?

    Also... I assume this would be much more complicated, but I would ideally like to set up a Mac for the admin device to have authorities over the Windows devices.... Any info about this and how I could possibly go cross-platform for these capabilities.. would be greatly appreciated.

    admin rights keep disappearing!?!!

    Hi guys,

    I am actually having a problem at work that our IT department hasn't been able to figure out. I am supposed to be a member of the admin group. We are on a domain. The problem is that everytime I reboot the computer I loose my admin rights(no longer in the administrator group) and just become a normal user again. I have tried googling this and didn't get to many results.
    I believe IT is just giving me local admin rights, not admin rights for the whole domain.

    Any suggestions?

    EDIT: It is on Windows XP Pro.
