In a Windows operating system, an Administrator account is an account that allows a user to make changes that require administrative permissions. An Administrator has more rights on a Windows OS as compared to the users with a local account. For example, the users with a local or standard account can access files and folders on their own user space, make system changes that do not require administrative permissions, install and uninstall programs, etc. On the other hand, an Administrator can change security settings, install and uninstall software, add and remove users, make changes to other user accounts, etc. In short, to perform the tasks that require administrative permissions, you should be logged in as an Administrator. In this tutorial, we will see how to log in as an Administrator in Windows 11/10.
Every Windows computer has a Local Administrator account that is created at the time of Windows installation. As described above, the Administrator has full access to the Windows device as compared to other standard users. The Administrator can also create new and delete the existing users and change the user account permissions. You can log in as an Administrator in Windows 11/10 by:
Let’s see all these methods in detail.
If you are starting your PC then locate the Administrator account and use the password to login.
If you are currently not logged in as an administrator and want to change to an admin, open Start, click on the user icon, select Sign out and then log into the Admin account by using its password.
The Windows OS has a built-in Administrator account. In Windows 11/10 and Windows Server 2016, the built-in Administrator account is disabled at the time of Windows installation and another local account is created which is the member of the Administrators group.
The built-in Administrator account is also called the Super Administrator account. If we compare the built-in Administrator account with the Local Administrator account, the built-in Administrator account has elevated privileges. This means when you perform the administrative tasks, you will not get the UAC prompt. Apart from that, if you want to do some serious troubleshooting on your Windows machine or if you want to recover your main account or another user account, you can use the built-in Administrator account.
Because the built-in Administrator account does not show the UAC prompt, any application can have full control over your system. Therefore, running this account on a regular basis can be risky. You should enable the built-in Administrator account only if you have to do some troubleshooting or recover other user accounts. After performing your task, you should disable it.
As explained above, every Windows OS has a Local Administrator account which is created at the time of Windows installation. Hence, you have to sign in to that Local Administrator account in order to enable the built-in Administrator account. After enabling the built-in Administrator account, you can login as an Administrator in Windows 11/10.
Every Windows 11/10 computer has a default Local Administrator account which is created at the time of Windows installation. Using that account, you can create another Local Administrator account for another user. To do so, open the Accounts page in your Windows 11/10 Settings and then click on the Family & other users option. Now, you have two options:
Let’s see how to create a Local Administrator account for a family member and other users.
You can use this option if you have another Microsoft account and you want to add that account as an Administrator to your Windows computer.
Now, you can login as an Administrator in Windows 11/10 using that account.
If you do not have another Microsoft account, you can still create a Local Administrator account. This time, you have to add an account in the Other users section on the Family & other users page. The steps are as follows:
Now, you can use this account to login as an Administrator in Windows 11/10.

If you already have created a local account on your Windows machine, you can change its type and use that account to login as an Administrator. The steps to change the local account to an Administrator account are as follows:
At the time of Windows installation, a Local Administrator account is created automatically. You can use that account to log onto your computer as an Administrator. Apart from that, you can also enable the hidden or built-in Administrator account or create an additional Local Administrator account.
We have explained all these methods above in this article.
To run Windows as an Administrator, you should have an Administrator account. There are different methods by which you can create an Administrator account. In addition to this, you can also enable the built-in Administrator account. But it is not recommended to use the built-in Administrator account on a regular basis due to security issues.
This is all about how to log in as an Administrator in Windows 11/10.

Microsoft's Skills 2000 aims to close the gap.
Nancy Lewis, general manager for Worldwide Training and Certification at Microsoft Corp., believes that vendors need to "pull together" and take the lead in closing the skills gap. For Lewis, "goal number one," is to attract more people to the industry, and "goal number two," is to train those workers. To help move things along, Microsoft recently launched the Skills 2000 program, a multimillion dollar, two-year effort designed to help close the skills gap with outreach, education, and training initiatives.
The company also pumped $75 million into the Microsoft Authorized Academic Training Program (AATP), which trains students at the high school, vocational, community college, and university levels in disciplines such as network management, systems administration, and computer programming. According to Microsoft, more than 100,000 students at 500 schools in 38 states will receive AATP training by the end of the 1998 academic year.
Sign up for Cisco's shop class for the 21st century.
Joining the training effort, Cisco, a leading vendor of network products such as routers and hubs, is sponsoring a nationwide program that will enable high school and college students to earn certification as Cisco Certified Networking Associates. In 1997, Cisco established 57 Networking Academies in high schools and junior colleges in seven states, and the company expects to have more than 400 academies in all 50 states by the fall semester of 1998. Cisco describes the effort as the equivalent of a shop class for the 21st century. Students in the program will learn the skills necessary to design and manage computer networks. Cisco is contributing approximately $18 million in curriculum, equipment, and resources to launch the program.
According to Cisco regional managers Steve Armstrong and Kevin Givens, strong interest in the program has come from the University of the District of Columbia, Howard University, and Archbishop Carroll High School. In Maryland, Baltimore's Washington High School now hosts a Cisco academy, and Givens is working with the schools in Prince George's Co., Montgomery Co., and Baltimore City to establish Networking Academies in those counties.
In addition, Cisco is teaming up with the Virginia Community Colleges System (VCCS) to start regional academies on 23 campuses throughout the state by the fall semester of 1998. These regional academies will support local academies in Virginia high schools. Armstrong and Givens believe there are approximately 30 schools in the District that could potentially host Cisco Networking Academies.
Novell has opened a novel foundation.
Novell Inc., the Orem, Utah-based vendor of networking software, is also sponsoring a program for training workers in network administration. Novell recently sponsored a program at Ballou High School in the District that offered students networking courses and career support. The project, carried out in conjunction with the Foundation for Educational Innovation, proved so successful that Novell donated $100,000 worth of software to help expand the program to surrounding schools.
Novell operates 1,450 training centers around the world, with an additional 420 high schools, community colleges, and universities throughout the United States offering Novell training. According to David Marler, director of business development for Novell Education, schools in Michigan, Florida, and California are now working on plans to deploy Novell's Certified Novell Administrator (CNA) program. According to Novell, approximately 25,000 students nationwide will take the CNA course as part of the high school curriculum during 1998.
B.S. holders are top guns at entry-level.
At the university level, says Dr. Lloyd Griffiths, dean of the School of Information Technology and Engineering at the Northern Virginia campus of George Mason University, "the way colleges are teaching [technology] is changing dramatically." For example, at George Mason, students from all departments, including liberal arts majors, will soon be able to select a minor in IT by taking 17 credit hours of technology course work. This new approach "came at the request of industry," Griffiths notes, partly because of the realization that "there are a lot of [technology-related jobs] that don't need a Ph.D. in computer science."
The most solid path for ensuring a long and successful career in high technology is to complete a four-year bachelor's degree in computer science or engineering. According to Griffiths, students who graduate with four-year technical degrees are snapped up by employers as soon as they graduate. Thanks to the overwhelming demand for high-tech workers, most computer science and engineering college grads can pick and choose from numerous entry-level offers, select a work culture that works for them, and negotiate great benefits.
Many companies, such as CDSI, begin wooing students with paid internships that bring them into the company even before they graduate. "We focus on the computer science and business departments," at the University of Maryland for entry-level workers, says Hollister. "We try to get interns from both of those groups" because CDSI has divisions that focus on IT solutions and business application solutions, he says. Even so, it's tough hanging onto the grads once their internships are over and graduation approaches. "The offers these interns are getting are outstanding," says Hollister, recalling one student who had seven job offers prior to graduation.
In addition, regional technology groups, such as the High Technology Council (HTC) of Maryland and Virginia's Northern Virginia Technology Council are leaning on local legislatures to do more to promote high-tech education and training in the schools. HTC, for example, is cosponsoring a tuition release bill in Maryland that would provide free tuition for technology courses at community colleges and universities in exchange for a commitment from the student to work in a Maryland company after graduation.

Having a Facebook page is an excellent way to promote your business or a cause. However, if your page suddenly becomes popular, running it will turn into a job all of its own. That’s when you need to consider bringing on people as page admins to help you run the shop. Here’s how to add an admin on a Facebook page — and remove them later if it becomes necessary.

To add an admin to a Facebook page, go to the page settings, then Page roles. Search for the Facebook profile owner that you want to add, select the page role as Admin and save. When the person has accepted the invitation, they will be an admin of the page. To remove them, click Edit next to their name in the Page roles section and choose Remove.
JUMP TO KEY SECTIONS
On the Facebook desktop website, go to the Facebook page in question. In the left-hand sidebar, scroll to the bottom and click Settings.
Under Assign a new Page role, start typing the name of the person that you want to add as an admin. When you find them, click them. If their name is a common one, you may have to add their Facebook-registered email address instead.
Editor is chosen as the default page role. Therefore, drop down the list and select Admin instead.
Enter your password to confirm the changes. This stops anyone from sneakily adding themselves as an admin to your Facebook page without permission.
They will now appear in the Existing Page roles section as Pending. When they accept the invitation to become an admin, that Pending tag will disappear. Until then, you also have the opportunity to cancel the invitation.
If things are not working out, and you need to remove them as an admin, that is very straightforward to do. Go back to Existing Page roles and click the Edit button.
In the bottom-left, there is a Remove button. Click that to remove them as an admin. Alternatively, you can drop down the permissions menu and downgrade them to a lesser role. Remember to click Save to make sure the changes go through.
It feels much more streamlined and easier to add an admin to a page using the mobile app.
To remove someone as a page admin in the mobile app:
No, only holders of personal profiles can be added as page admins.
Yes, they have a lot of control over a page, including reassigning page roles and privileges. This includes the page owner.
A page can have an unlimited number of admins. However, practically speaking, you should keep it to the bare minimum.
Technically, this is possible. But then nobody would have access to the page, and it would become dormant.
Yes, they can delete the page.
No, you can’t see any specific admins, but the contact information in the About section may reveal who it is.
The person needs to have a Facebook account and must have ‘liked’ the page that you want to add them to.

The administrator of the Transportation Security Administration, said Wednesday that the agency would deliver new cybersecurity requirements for the aviation industry "in the not-too-distant future."
Speaking at the Aspen Cyber Summit, TSA chief David Pekoske said that the administration is following a similar method of developing the forthcoming cybersecurity rules as it did for the oil and gas pipeline sector, when it released a series of security guidelines in 2021 following the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack.
Pekoske declined to provide more details on a timeline or what those directives may include, but according to a Reuters report, several U.S. airport websites were hit this week with what seemed to be coordinated denial-of-service attacks that the TSA attributed to pro-Russian hackers.
While those attacks did not appear to affect airport operations, they echo the urgency of the White House following Colonial Pipeline attack, where Pekoske said officials held top secret-level briefings with the nation's most critical pipeline owners to help develop a baseline set of cybersecurity requirements for the oil and natural gas pipeline industry.
Before the TSA released those individual directives for the pipeline industry in July 2021, the White House held briefings for the chief executive officers of the most critical pipeline companies in the U.S. in sensitive compartmented information facilities, or SCIFs, to "frankly exchange perspectives and then figure out the way forward," Pekoske said.
The TSA administrator said he attended several of the White House briefings with critical pipeline owners, which were enabled by the National Security Council.
"We felt it was very important … for the CEOs to see the 'why' – why we were reacting the way we were, and why we needed their support in reallocating resources and priorities within their companies to build cybersecurity resilience within that sector," he said. "My reaction to it was, 'Wow, we should be doing this all the time.'"
TSA eventually released multiple cybersecurity directives for critical pipelines owners and operators in response to the Colonial Pipeline attack, requiring operators to report confirmed and potential cybersecurity incidents to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and to address cybersecurity risks and remediation measures to the TSA and CISA within 30 days, among other directives.
It's unclear whether aviation industry leaders will also take part in similar top secret-level briefings, but the Reuters story also noted that as a condition of its airport terminal grants, the Federal Aviation Administration recently issued a notice to airports "to consider and address physical and cyber security risks relevant to the transportation mode and type and scale of the project."
Pekoske said that it's vital for the administration to engage and collaborate with industry leaders on the cybersecurity challenges facing them.
"Most of the critical infrastructure in the country is owned by the private sector," he added. "The private sector should be aware of the extent of the threat that they're facing so they can look at the vulnerability [and] consequences and determine the risk that they're undertaking."
A Georgia school district administrator allegedly plied minors with alcohol and slept with a student, authorities said Thursday in announcing her arrest.
Dr. Rachelle Louise Terry, 43, of Chatsworth, is facing child molestation and statutory rape charges for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a student.
She has also been charged with 10 counts of furnishing alcohol to minors during a Halloween party this year, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) said Thursday.
The alleged relationship came to light as authorities were investigating the alcohol incident, which is when investigators asked the GBI to step in on Nov. 23, WAGA-TV reported.
Terry was being held in the Murray County Jail.
Authorities said the investigation is “active and ongoing” and encouraged anyone with information to contact the GBI.
Terry’s contract mandates that she be kept on paid leave until a hearing can be conducted, WTVC-TV reported. She is the director of federal programs, data collections and enrollment, according to the school district’s website. She has officially been placed on paid administrative leave, the district said.
“We are shocked and saddened to hear of the criminal charges involving our employee,” a spokesperson told WTVC. “These are extremely serious charges. The safety and well-being of our students are always a top priority for Murray County Schools.”

The Biden administration is extending the pause on student loan payments until no later than June 30, 2023, as theis held up in court. President Biden announced the extension Tuesday in a video posted to the White House Twitter account.
Student loan repayments were supposed to resume Jan. 1, 2023, for the first time since thebegan. But a federal appeals court has blocked the president's student loan forgiveness program, and the administration has asked the Supreme Court to reinstate their stalled plans. For now, the fate of the program remains unclear, with millions of borrowers in limbo.
The White Housein August that Mr. Biden would be taking executive action to forgive $10,000 in loans for Americans making under $125,000 a year or $250,000 for married couples. Pell grant receipents are eligible for additional $10,000 to be forgiven.
"I'm confident that our student debt relief plan is legal," Mr. Biden tweeted. "But it's on hold because Republican officials want to block it. That's why @SecCardona is extending the payment pause to no later than June 30, 2023, giving the Supreme Court time to hear the case in its current term."
Payments would restart 60 days after the Supreme Court decision or on June 30, whichever comes first. The Supreme Court has not yet said whether they will take the case.
Since the Biden administration announced the plan, it has faced a number of legal challenges, and has beentwo federal courts. The White House has said that nearly 26 million Americans have applied for the program, and 16 million applications have already been approved.

Anne Heche’s son has been granted control over her estate.
The 'Donnie Brasco' actress died in August following a car crash and since then, her 20-year-old offspring Homer Laffoon - whose father is her ex-husband Coleman Laffoon - and former partner James Tupper have been locked in a dispute over the control of her affairs.
However, on Wednesday (30.11.22), Homer was named general administrator of his mother's estate and granted permission to “take possession of all the personal property of the estate of the decedent and preserve it from damage, waste, and injury.
Judge Lee Bogdanoff dismissed claims from James - who has 13-year-old son Atlas with the late star - that Homer is "not suitable" to run the estate because of his age, unemployment status and the fact he wasn't in contact with his mother at the time of her death.
The judge added: “I find no malfeasance by Mr. Laffoon."
In addition, the judge also denied James' request for a hearing to investigate a claim that Anne's $200,000 jewellery collection has gone missing.
The judge did issue a caveat that Homer could be removed as administrator if any evidence of fraud or embezzlement surfaces related to the estate.
A future hearing has been scheduled to address an $800,000 bond on the estate previously requested by Homer because the judge noted the value of Anne's estate is not yet set as she still has acting residuals incoming, as well as plans for the release of her second memoir in January.
As part of his new role, Homer is able to receive copies of his mother's financial records, file tax returns on her behalf, and "commence and maintain or defend" suits and other legal proceedings.
Homer's legal team welcomed the ruling.
Attorney Bryan Phipps told People magazine: “We believe the court reached the correct result this morning, both legally and equitably, and are glad to have this phase of the process behind us.
“With Mr. Tupper’s allegations and objections now resolved, we are hopeful the administration of the Estate can proceed without unnecessary complication.”
