Windows 10: Puzzled about System Administrator

    Puzzled about System Administrator

    In Store/Settings, I want to enable App Updates to update automatically. I read up on how to do it - discovered that as the only user of this computer I have to be an administrator, to alter the setting, yet when I go to Store/Settings/App updates, the on/off button it greyed out and says I have to contact my system administrator about changing the setting. I AM the administrator! Aren't I? I don't get it....

    Actually, forget it - I think it IS set to update automatically. And is greyed out so it can't be changed.
