    not sure of your note .. .I open as far as I can and then hit cancel ... nothing special happens ..
    Read what is on the screen and follow it by clicking on Change. Also Admin is not a root account, just a glorified Standard account.

    Because you are jumping into Advanced user properties.

    The real Admin account that gives “Root” privileges is always disabled for security purposes.
    The built-in Admin account is just like any other Admin account except that it has UAC turned off by default & it cannot run Apps.

    If you have found evidence that seems to indicate otherwise please would you post a link to it.

    Sorry but the Administration account that is created when you setup an account is not the Root/Admin account that is disabled, that is there for Root Access. UAC does not affect the Root account, only User accounts. Using the Root account for regular access is very dangerous cs the User Admin account.

    Well I'm sorry but there is no such thing as a 'root' account in Windows.

    The Built-In Adminstrator account is just like any other Admin account that has UAC turned off [plus it cannot run Modern Apps]. It is in no sense a 'root' account.

    [The Built-In Adminstrator account can have UAC enabled deliberately although I am not aware of circumstances where that would be beneficial. With UAC enabled, it operates in 'Admin Approval Mode'.]
    [Similarly, a user-created Admin account can have UAC disabled deliberately despite the security risk that this would represent.]
