“I have an ASUS all in one Windows 8 desktop type PC. There is one local user account, which has somehow lost administration rights. This is obviously quite an issue, as I cannot access many functions of the PC, including a work critical application.”
Lost admin privileges in Windows 8.1, 8, 10 PC can be a painful experience. It thus becomes imperative for us to get the administrator rights back anyhow if you want to run the system without difficulty. Here in this passage, we provide how to get administrator rights on Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 with ease.
If you have already lost the admin privileges, the most common way is to create a new admin account. And to do that, use a Windows password recovery tool (also named as Windows Password Key) is the easiest method. But first of all, you should prepare a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash and a workable computer.
Using this Windows password recovery tool to create a new admin account, you don’t have to have professional technical skills or knowledge. All you should do is to follow the concise clues on the intuitive interface.
Of course, you can create a new admin account manually, although it is a little complicated and troublesome.
Since you have administrative privileges now, you can backup your documents from the old administrator account. After that, you can feel free to delete the old admin account and switch to Microsoft account to synchronize your settings with new administrative account. Your system will now act normally with full admin rights in your hand.
