Log in to the computer as an administrator on Windows

If you are not logged in to the Windows computer as an administrator, you will not be able to access all the files on the computer, install software, change settings, and perform other operations that rely on this authority. You can check whether you are logged into Windows as an administrator according to the following steps:
1. After logging in to the computer, click the "Start" button.
2. Go to "User Accounts" from "Control Panel". Then click "Manage User Accounts".
3. Enter the administrator account password. If you are not logged in to the desktop or laptop as an administrator account, you cannot log in to the administrator account in this step. This can determine whether you are using an administrator account.
