    Window Ten Can't Run Anything in Admin


    I can't run any application as admin. I get this message for anything I try.


    I can't access the user account controls to change it because the same message pops up. I tried option four in this thread as suggested in another post User Accounts Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums but I get this message.

    If you can not perform admin tasks, your only option is Option Five.

    I got two separate accounts under administrator. The new one I somehow got my network files connected but now I have this microsoft account attached, and it won't allow me to take off the password. I don't want to have to type in my password or have my account attached. How do I solve this problem?

    You can switch from a Microsoft account to a Local account at any time. A Local account will allow you to have a blank password, if that's what you want.

    Switch to Local Account in Windows 10

    (and back again, if you wish)
    Switch to Microsoft Account in Windows 10
