Adding a second admin privs user to my laptop

    Question

  • Hi I have a laptop running windows 8.1. I am the only user and my account has admin privs. Can a second administrator account be added which would have total access to the original account including folders and applications? I would like to ad a "local" admin account; not an @outlook.com account There is a Utube video on the process here https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gbjFUbjrVsg but it does not answer the question I have. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Marty

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 8.1 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'
