Hey, I wan't to make sure I have admin acess, how do I make sure I am an admin?
I just disable user account controls, but you can also do this: go to start menu and type UAC in the search bar, click on user account controls, click on your account then set it as the administrator.
kk got it, thanks
Erm, UAC isn't really related to whether your account is in the Administrators group. Don't turn UAC off just to get "admin access". UAC is a security feature.
Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts
Change your account type (may require UAC prompt/admin password)
Ensure it's set to "Administrator", not "Standard user".
Yea, just by going to the user accounts page, I could see it was already set to Administrator. So I don't have to do anything. Thanks for the input guys.
