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.
Read: How to rename built-in Administrator Account in Windows.
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.

The volume, velocity and variety of data that organizations are dealing with has increased dramatically in recent years. While all this data poses new challenges to leaders — especially in the U.S. government — it can also unlock troves of important organizational insights if collected, analyzed and harnessed with the right tools.
Rob Carey, president of Cloudera Government Solutions, believes “the future is the commoditization of data,” and he’s working to give his customers a one-stop shop for leveraging data to drive better, quicker and more informed decision making.
Carey’s career encompasses senior executive-level positions across government and industry and notably includes posts such as Principal Deputy Chief Information Officer for the Department of Defense and CIO of the Department of the Navy. During Carey’s tenure at the DOD, he oversaw the development of the department’s first ever cloud strategy, and led the modernization of standards for national security systems across government, giving him a wealth of knowledge and an intimate familiarity with the challenges and opportunities of using the network to drive mission success in government.
GovCon Wire sat down with Carey to learn more about the data challenges public sector organizations are facing, how emerging technologies are changing the data landscape, where Cloudera’s strategic vision is taking the company and more.
Read below for Rob Carey’s full Executive Spotlight interview.
GovCon Wire: What can you tell us about Cloudera’s recent growth initiatives? What do you hope to accomplish in the coming year, and are there any new markets that you’re keeping an eye on in the federal sector?
Carey: “Cloudera is developing an industry-leading hybrid, multi-cloud data management capability. What that means is that it doesn’t matter where an organization’s data is or where it wants it to go. We’ll be able to ‘command and control’ the data from a single pane of glass and help locate, move and analyze it, then run state-of-the-art analytics to help organizations make better informed decisions and provide essential insights.
We build software for complex problems. The first mile of the data journey (locating and moving) is not a terribly complex problem, but it can be, depending on the number and volume of data sources. Cybersecurity is a complex, data-centric problem, but moving log data from edge devices to a central location for analysis, or to analyze in support of the customer, is but the first critical step.
Once necessary data is identified, the agency is in a good place to do curation, reporting, servicing and of course analytics (AI/ML). For example, understanding performance data from a fleet of aircraft or vehicles, when properly instrumented, can lead to better operational performance as well as savings associated with the cost of maintenance. Those types of projects help us solve the government’s real-life mission problems.
One of our big initiatives is to not sell a platform, but sell a solution. Platform-based solutions require work to hone in on being a solution. Once we understand a specific problem, we deliver a solution that solves that problem — that’s what government agencies are looking for. In order to do all this, we’re building and delivering solution demonstrations of our code in real time. Almost everyone who’s seen our code operate in real time has said, ‘Wow, I need that, I want that right now.’ It’s been very eye-opening. As we do live demonstrations in front of government agencies, they can see we’re not selling a platform.”
GCW: How are partnerships helping Cloudera expand its position in the federal marketplace, drive innovation and new capabilities and ultimately help complete your company’s mission?
Carey: “We go to market through partners, not directly. Carahsoft is our main distributor for our software, providing us flexibility to better serve the government while utilizing experts to manage the interface with government agencies directly.
We also have partnerships with system integrators and Value Added Resellers. We’ve created an ecosystem of partners that helps identify a problem we can help solve and get a response back to the market as soon as possible to solve that particular agency’s problem.
These partners act as another set of eyes and ears that help us understand potential problems we can solve. They know our code and what we’re capable of doing. We can provide professional services and the software to help deliver a solution on behalf of the customer. Partners broaden our ability to serve the government. We have to rely on partners letting us know what can and can’t be done, who needs what and where. If we have six or seven solutions in these demos, we know which one to take to which partners. So that’s helping keep our business growing.”
GCW: On that note, how can industry and the federal government collaborate better in order to accelerate innovation and meet emerging mission needs?
Carey: “This is a great question. When I was in government, I believed the relationship with industry needs to be very transparent. If industry knew what we needed done — in enough detail, they could help me get there. And no matter what the problem was, they could tell me how they might be able to solve it. Trust relationships between industry and government are essential.
Collaboration and transparency between government and industry is really crucial for the government to be successful. Agencies don’t always have the employees, skills or tools needed to solve operational problems that materialize. They must have support contractors, FSIs, OEMs and software vendors to collaborate and deliver an outcome on behalf of the government.
What sometimes gets in the way is the fear of making a mistake in an acquisition. There’s a fear of letting somebody know information they shouldn’t know. One of the challenges with the acquisition process is that at times, the ‘system’ does not reward risk taking, it rewards protecting the government from liability, sometimes at the expense of timeliness and mission requirements.
Collaboration between government and industry can manifest itself in several different ways. For example, many agencies host industry days where they can provide what is needed and approximately when. This information helps industry help the government.”
GCW: With the influence of emerging technologies impacting every aspect of business, how is Cloudera driving digital transformation efforts and staying ahead of innovation in the federal landscape for yourself and your customers?
Carey: “The technology train is an Acela. In the government five years ago, chief data officers didn’t exist. Chief data and artificial intelligence officers didn’t exist. This is now a position codified in law. These people are responsible for transforming their respective departments and agencies into data-centric organizations and to use data to drive mission success, and that’s awesome!
The emerging technologies you’ve heard of, like AI and ML, which are very complex — those technologies require somebody really skilled at data management or data engineering to evaluate, ‘Where does that play for me?’ And does the government have enough of those? Does industry have enough of those very smart people? The answer is ‘no.’
Digital transformation is going to be enabled by visibility into data and querying the data for insights that heretofore have not been seen. Until we have the ability to do that, and have the people that can also do that, we’re watching the game from outside the fence, and you really want to be on the field.
With emerging technologies in data, there are several things in the open source community that are becoming powerful enablers, like the Iceberg technologies, Ranger, Impala and Hive — they perform these nuanced functions that really are powerful in enabling customers to diagnose, modify and manipulate the data in a way that they need to get to this insight that will enable leaders to make decisions.
Transformation is really about becoming more efficient and effective as an organization. Can the agency perform functions using less resources to get a better answer? When you understand data is the key to all of that, you want to start focusing on, ‘How do I harness that data? What technologies will enable me to do that? Am I willing to use proprietary data? Should I use cloud computing to do that?’
Cloud computing is a powerful tool that’s applicable for certain things, but it’s not applicable for every workload. So it’s necessary to understand a little bit about the environment you’re engaging in, what decisions you want to make and the level of resources you have to start your digital transformation journey. The operational outcome you’re trying to get to is, ‘Am I serving more constituents with less money?’ And certainly data can be the center of that.
Once you understand data and have your workforce trained (or you have somebody doing it for you) you have the ability to run fast and really start providing insights to senior leaders that they didn’t have before.
The future, as I see it, is commoditization of data and enabling many more people to access tools which harness big data to drive informed decisions.”

Enhanced access and management of hybrid data will accelerate PTT Oil and Retail Business's creation of Thailand's first ever integrated retail and fueling customer experience.
SINGAPORE, Nov. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloudera, the hybrid data company, today announced that Thai oil and retail corporation PTT Oil and Retail Business Public and Company Limited (OR) has chosen Cloudera to create the country's first ever integrated retail and fueling customer experience through the enhancement of their data analytical capabilities. OR is taking steps to implement the Cloudera Data Platform (CDP) to power its new data and analytics platform that delivers insights, providing OR with a clearer view of their customers while enhancing customer engagement by offering a unified and personalized experience across OR's 1,900 gas stations and 3,000 retail branches. This optimized use of data analytics will also drive the overall transformation of OR's digital infrastructure, enabling the company to leverage new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and geo-analytics to accelerate operational processes.
The consolidation of Petroleum Authority of Thailand Public Company Limited's oil and retail businesses to form OR has brought the management of linked businesses, such as cafes located at gas stations, closer together. Customers' interactions with OR's business subsidiaries across multiple touch points generated vast amounts of data to map the customer journey and develop integrated and personalized omni-channel experiences for its digitally savvy customers. These customer insights would also inform future marketing and promotional strategies to expand OR's local business presence. To leverage this data in achieving higher business growth, OR needed a flexible, efficient and secure solution to manage their enterprise data in a new analytics platform that serves as a single source of truth and to democratize data access to their employees spanning different business units for analysis.
OR is working with Cloudera to design and migrate their existing data platform onto Cloudera's hybrid data solution. OR has selected CDP as the best fit solution to speedily access and manage their data stored across their various cloud and on-premises environments, with the goal for full implementation by 2024. Key challenges that OR seeks to address include seamless and secure access to and delivery of structured and unstructured data stored across multiple environments, organization and scale of data across the data lifecycle, and integrated security and governance that will enable the application of new technologies such as geo-analytics and artificial intelligence to enhance operational processes. With the ability to tap on real-time insights, OR will be able to deliver personalized services by integrating offerings from its multiple business units and subsidiaries. This will also help reduce time spent on other business processes such as franchising, as the technologies could automate location leasing requests from franchise owners of OR's food and beverage businesses across Thailand.
"At OR, we see data as 'the new gold' and are glad to have chosen to work with Cloudera to implement the technology crucial for realizing our business strategy. We are interested in CDP's ability to harness both on-premises and cloud-based data, which makes it an ideal solution for our hybrid data architecture. With CDP, we are looking to build a platform to democratize our enterprise data and enhance our analysis, which will help us better understand our customers to create impactful and personalized experiences. This will also provide us with the right structured data to support new technological applications. We are looking forward to harnessing the full potential of hybrid data with Cloudera," said K.Wison Suntharachan, Senior Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Sustainability, OR
"Customers today are seeking more personalized, omni-channel experiences. Data is an important resource in creating these experiences, by providing the pieces needed to form a robust understanding of customers' needs and wants. OR's vast amounts of data, available through their businesses, provides the perfect opportunity. Cloudera is delighted to provide the platform needed for OR to turn this data into meaningful experiences for customers," said Remus Lim, Vice President, Asia Pacific and Japan, Cloudera.
