If you have multiple users on your Windows 10, 8, or 7 and want to convert any of the regular user account types to administrator one for some reason then here is the tutorial to follow…
Note: Well, one thing which you need to remember for changing the type of user account you should have the password of an existing administrator account.
However, what is the need of making some other existing account an administrator? It is because, if you have friends or family members who need equal but full access to the system you may need to convert any existing local account to an admin one. As we know a local account without admin access on Windows 10, 8, 7, or any other previous version has limited rights. Such as it cannot install, uninstall, or modify any existing software because of restricted access. Furthermore, no ability to modify the registry and deleting of Windows files. Therefore, to fully access our Windows 10 system first we need to become or make a local account type to Administrator.
Change a local account type to Administrator
- On your Windows 10 or previous 8 or 7, go to the search box and type Control Panel.
- When it appears, click on the Control Panel icon to open it.
- Select the User Accounts option → Change Account Type.
- Select your local account that you want to make an administrator one.
- After that again you will see multiple options, again select the “Change the account type“.
- As we cannot become administrators without the permission of an existing admin account, thus the system will ask you to enter the password for the same.
- Select the Administrator and then Change Account Type option to get complete control over the PC after that you will be able to change any settings and access all the files and programs stored on the Windows PC.
- Once you will become the Administrator of the system, you can even remove the other user accounts including the Admin ones.
