    Windows 10 (Administrator Rights)


    Hi,
    In the Control Panel (Users) i have administrator rights, but when i try to do some changes or save a file (for example on c:/windows/............../etc), it appears on screen "acess denied". Is there a way to solve it, like super administrator as it was on windows 8?
    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    There is the built in Administrator account but you really should not be using that for general use. It is a security risk and you will find there is much that will not work.

    With UAC enabled even an admin level account has by default only standard account rights. Full admin rights are available only on request and only temporarily. This is a security measure that goes back to Vista. Disabling UAC is not recommended and particularly difficult in Windows 10.
