    admin (Home premium x64)

    Hello,

    Sometimes when I'm updating or changing things, I've gotten a message that I must be logged in as administrator.

    How do this?

    Thanks,

    JohnSo

    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>
