    About accounts: Admin/Standard user?


    I just did a clean install of W10 for a friend.

    I havent set up a fresh install of 10 and am familar with the structure of accounts in W7>
    So.
    Clarify for me the "rights" of accounts(that i set up) in W10
    Do they have adminstrator rights?
    Plan was to set up and Admin account with admin rights then create standard user account for daily use.
    Same type of setup in W10?

    Hello Brando,

    The account you create during Windows 10 Setup/Installation will be an administrator account.

    When you create a new account in Windows 10, it will be a standard user account by default unless changed to be an administrator.

    The main difference between Windows 7 and 10 is that you can create a local account (like Windows 7) and Microsoft account in Windows 10.
