    I'm leery of clicking on Administrator

    1/13/2017 Since yesterday's upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, when I enter my password, I not only see my name but also the word Administrator. I'm leery of clicking on Administrator for fear my computer might be reformatted, but I certainly would like to have Administrator Privileges. What should I do?

    Hello Gerry, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you had enabled the built-in "Administrator" account, then that would be why you see that account's name on the sign-in screen.
