    Getting Administrative Privaleges for my PC Account

For example, I want to be able to make a System Restore Point and Open up the Administrator Command Prompt. I am in a CyberSecurity class right now and I want to have more control. I do understand that it is unsafe to use an Admin Account on a daily basis, but look at this window that I get:

    Does this mean that a password was made to lock me out of windows features? Could I have been hacked? There isn't even a place that I could type a password, even if I click the show details button.

    In a command prompt type net localgroup administrators. What users are listed as administrators on the computer?

    I reset my hard drive and it fixed the problem, sorry. I am glad I am back to windows 8.1, windows 10 just isn't working for me.
