Hi How can I start my pc with a user account and not the administrator account in Win10?  Or is it possible to transfer everything into my admin account and just have the one.  The user account has administrator rights but I can't delete the admin account.

Only a administrator account has those administrator rights.

 

To switch users press the Alt Ctrl Del keys together.  You will see the following options LOCK, Switch user, Sign out,Task Manager.

Arachibutyrophobia   Thanks for getting in contact and I must apologise if I didn't express myself very well but my problem is when I startup my laptop I have to go through the process of signing in to my administrator account then I sign out and then change user and sign into my user account.  I would prefer just to go straight to my user account and sign in just the once.  I'm looking for help to do this.

That definitely is a horse of a different color.

 

My wife has been out of town all day and just got home.  I will have to get back to this in the morning.

If it acts like Windows 8 login to your user account. Shutdown the computer in your user account. Boot the computer and you should be offered your user account. Windows 8 defaults to the user that last shutdown so I assume it works for Windows 10.

  1. Create another account with Admin rights
  2. Set a password on the new account
  3. Log in with the new account.
  4. Change your current account to a regular user.

JohnC_21  Thanks That is what has always happened in the past but that isn't happening now...it just reboots to admin account every time.  I can't think of anything I've done in the last day or so that could have made it change.  I am wondering if I may somehow be able to transfer all the settings in my user account into the admin account then I can delete my user account and so sign in just the once.

Kilroy Thanks for that ...how do I change my user account to regular user?  I've set up another user account but I'm still rebooting to the admin account.
