Since the era of Windows Vista, Microsoft has changed the account mechanism in terms of rights or privileges (make changes to system files, read and write files, and others). There are 3 types of accounts, including:
- User:This is a standard account, you can log in with a local account or it integrates with Windows 10. When you are logged in with this user and want to run the app with run as Admin, User Account Control (UAC) will appear and you are prompted to enter the admin password if you wish continue the process.
- Administrator User: This is the standard admin account that is created by default during Windows installation or factory default (OEM). When logged in with this user and want to run the application with run as Admin, then UAC will appear and just click Yes to continue the process.
- Super Administrator: An account where you can perform full system configuration. By running this account there will be no UAC warning when running administrator privileges.
By default, Windows 11 disables the Super Administrator account for security reasons. If you want, then you can use the following method to activate it.
