Yes, both users are Administrators but in the User Account Section, each are listed as 'Standard' and cannot be changed to Administrator when the selection is made as the 'Change Account Type' box is grayed outYou have not answered one crucial point........are you logged on as an Admin ?
Don't tell me you do not have an admin account to logon to.
Still the same condition........ both users are Administrators but in the User Account Section, each are listed as 'Standard'.......
OK. I find it a little hard to understand, but never mind.
The following is to enable the built-in Admin Account..........
right click at the Start button > select Command Prompt (Admin) > in the flashing prompt, copy and paste this...........
net user administrator /active:yes
> press Enter.
> exit command prompt.
> Restart > you should now see your new Admin in the login page
> logon to it > go to CP > User accounts > see if you can make the change you wanted.
Thanks, I'll keep trying.If both accounts are admin accounts and they can execute tasks only admins can perform, then perhaps it is not such a big deal.
I apologize if that sounds like a cop-out.
But if no ill effects come out of it, just let it slide. Meanwhile, continue to seek a solution.
