This was quite an annoying experience. When I upgraded to Windows 10, I expected the same user privileges would be the same when my operating system was still Windows 7. But alas, in Windows 10, every time I run some programs, it tells me access denied.

Hell. My account is not connected to any domain network since it is just a personal PC. It is quite annoying to have to manually set the account to be part of the Administrator group.

Sure. Good for me because I know how but for those who are not technically inclined, it can be a waste of time having to find a solution how to bypass it.

So anyway, since you are here, follow these steps:

  1. Go To Run ( WinKey + R )
  2. Type “control userpasswords2”
  3. Select Your Account And Click On “Properties”
  4. Select “Group Membership” Tab
  5. Select “Administrators”
  6. Click OK And OK

That’s it!
