    Win 10

    Domain admin account as built-in admin account

    I just upgraded two brand new pc's from Win 7 to Win 10. Computers were already added to the domain in Win 7 and I was logged into the domain administrator account when I did the upgrade to Win 10. Now when I am logged in with the domain administrator account, I can't open Edge. It says "This app can't open. Microsoft Edge can't be opened using the Built-in Administrator account. Sign in with a different account and try again."

    How do I get the local "Administrator" account to be the Built-in administrator account?

    The list of user accounts are:
    admin (local admin account I made in Win 7)
    Administrator (I assume local administrator account that is automatically created)
    administrator.AESSEINVLTD (domain admin account I am logged in with)

    Windows 10 Pro

    The domain admin account will have local admin rights as default. By design this account cannot run Edge. Either create normal user accounts or make the change in Windows 10 for the local admin account to be able to access apps through security policy changes. Not sure of the exact details (you will need to Google) but Windows 10 Pro you can change the local policy directly but Windows 10 Home you cannot and will need an alternate method.
