    Yes! Thank you Brink!! I was about to give up on W10... Well I just upgraded and was already irritated by many of the differences. And now the fact a simple F8 wouldn't get you a Safe Mode w/ Networking option... And yet after discovering the new way to finally get into safe mode and it kept telling me the built-in admin acct couldn't use the apps etc was a headache because then I didn't even have internet access on my machine to look for help whilst in safe mode, despite selecting option 5 for safe mode w/ networking... But finally enabling the hidden admin acct, I got in, took ownership of folders and files and moved things around. Now I'm signed in w/ my regular MS account and all is working fine! Thanks so much! ^_^

    I believe that disabling "EnableLUA" in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] (i.e. changing the value to 0) makes your current admin account act like that Built-in Elevated Admin account. As I don't have to run programs as administrator, and also I can't run any Windows modern apps.

    Doing that will disabled UAC, and break modern apps. It's not recommended in Windows 10.

    Are you doing it while signed out of the built-in Administrator, and signed in to another administrator account?
