admin (Home premium x64)
Sometimes when I'm updating or changing things, I've gotten a message that I must be logged in as administrator.
How do this?

Instead of double-clicking, right-click the executable file and from pop-up menu select "Run as Administrator"
Or in Search box type CMD, and when Windows finds it, right-click the shortcut and from pop-up menu select "Run as Administrator". Command Prompt window with elevated Administrator rights will open - you can run your command from this prompt.
You can also activate hidden "true" Administrator account, but for security reasons IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED !
From Command Prompt run the command:
<font face="Georgia">net user administrator /active:yes</font face=georgia>
Now you can logoff from your account and logon to Administrator account.
Remember: the "true" Administrator account has blank password (no password) by default.
Hide Administrator account immediately after you finish your task running the command:
<font face="Georgia">net user administrator /active:no</font face=georgia>
