How can i change limited account to administrator? The only option that I have in control panel is the Limited User account. Its not giving me an option to add, create, change account type. Please assist...

I have limited access


Change your account to an admin account or contact the admin for your system. To change your account to an admin account follow these steps: go to your control panel and select user accounts. On windows 7 you can just type "user accounts" in the search bar in your start menu. From there, select change your account type, and change it to Admin. If you are set as a standard account by your systems administrator, you will need their password to do so.

Trying to login to my account,it's not accepting my login,or anything


If you mean trying to log in to your computer using your Username and Password then I suggest trying to log in to the Administrator account and change your passowrd for the account you are unable to log in to

Once you are in the administrators account, check that there are no limitations on your account that prohibits you from logging in. To do this right click on My Computer and click Manage. On the computer management window click on Local Users and Groups, click on Users folder.

Where your username is right click and click on Properties. Make sure none of the boxes are ticked (especially Account is disabled - If it is untick) and tick Password never expires and click on Apply

Log out of Administrator Account and log in to your own

Problem


It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.
