How to Change Administrator on Windows 10

Windows 10 is a pretty good operating system when it comes to User accounts and Administrator accounts. Whenever we do a fresh installation of Windows 10 operating system we need to create a user account. 

The first account we create during installation process is always an Administrator account which allows us to manage all features of your computer. You might also love to read how to enable Developer mode in Windows 10.

Yes, the new version of Windows 10 offers two types of account which you can create at present. The first one is the Standard User Account (to give access to any family member, friends or relative). And the second one is the Administrator Account (the person who will manage the pc).

Standard User Features:  

In this account, the users have limited access and no admin privileges and rights are given to the standard user. The control in this user account is limited. The user can change their own account settings, but can’t interfere with other user account settings. You might love to read How to encrypt files and folder in Windows 10.

Standard users are not allowed to install or uninstall new programs, but that depends on admin whether he wants to give rights to a standard user or not. The installation can be done on Standard user account only after entering the Administrator login password.

Administrator Features: 

The admin have all privileges and rights to modify, keep, delete, install and uninstall any programs. The admin has complete control on the overall system. The admin can delete a standard user account, but a user cannot do the vice versa.

So in short Administrator is the king of the computer. You might also love to read my post How to make an offline printer online
