    User admin account to make changes that show up in standard account?

    If I login to the administrator account to make changes, I naturally want any changes I make to appear in the standard user account since that is the one I am making changes for. Does this happen automatically or do I have to do something special to make sure it always works that way?

    You are correct - only a moron or someone who didn't care about security would run as part of the administrator group all the time. Lots of people do but that is their prerogative.

    You say changes (what changes you do not say) are not copied from one user account to another. This is obvious. That is the point in having separate accounts. If user account A has authority to do something does that mean users account B-Z should as well? The obvious answer would be no.

    Give an example of your issue as at the moment it seems you are just not understanding the difference between group and user level security.
