    How to give admin privilegies on win 10?

    How to give admin privilegies on win 10? I had this problem on win 8.1 too.
    I done the next: Right click on partition- properties-security-full control to everyone.
    I can log in as admin but when I go to control panel, user account, manage other accounts- there isnt anyone (but it should). There is option to add someone to this pc, I type email but that service fail every time, then it gives me option to manually type the name and passwords... Dont know what to do.

    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Hi, I just am going through this goofy Windows 10 nonsense right now myself.

    hit Win+R and put in gpedit.msc that is the group editor.

    I had to thrash Windows Defender in there to get my rights to files, (services.msc didn't allow it) and I am on via the only account which is administrator.

    Where was all this testing of 10 I was hearing about? UAC, Defender, and the Firewall were all reinstalled/reenabled, I did the install with my 7 and keeping settings, and it was really awful and I am still confused on some access.

    I trashed that one drive immediately, I do not do cloud.

    When I first got it installed, my F partition, where I put all utils..... it wouldn't even let me run a basic MP3 player there.
    No access as admin, WHAT!!!!!!!!!!! That's were my blood started to boil, hehe

    Ok I find a way to add new user and set right as admin but my old account from 8.1 is not visible. When I go to user account with that profile it says that Im guest account. :/ I click change accout type but it wont let me (nothing happens) so when I tried to do that from Administrator account, my account is not visible o.O Maybe I need to turn on guests accounts somehow???

    Also, at least, is it possible to set that I log as Administrator at starup so I dont need every time to switch user after turning on my pc?
