I accidentally changed my admin account into local account now i can't install apps and do anything with it. Whenever I try to install some apps it always say.. type an administrators password but then I don't know how to. All I remember was that before i change my account into standard account.
It is possible update for all users the Windows Store apps with a local account belonging to the Administrators group? Then, I believe that the management of updating of the Windows Store apps can also be managed only by administrators. Right? If so, how do I do this?
I have accidentally changed the admin account to a local user and now cannot make any changes to my laptop. I am using an ASUS brand and when I click on manage user accounts it pops up with a screen "connect smart card".
Whilst on holiday I used a friends laptop with Windows 8 so that I could use Skype to call people. It was not set up so I had to do it. I didn't realize that I had synced my Skype to my friends Microsoft account and to her hotmail address. Now whenever I get a call or message to me on skype, she now gets it too.
I have tried to log out and other things, but it says that it is now tied to her. I'm running a different Windows to her so I am unable to work my way around it.
HowI can remove my Skype account from her Windows 8 account?

I have installed and uninstalled many apps from the Windows Store. But I have realized that, after having uninstalled some of them I didn't like, if I go to "Your Applications" and select "Applications not installed in this computer" I still see them like in a kind of "History" (like in the Internet browsers)
How Can I Remove The List Of "not installed apps" in Store ?
I'm trying to set up a dual boot system with Windows 8, (already installed on a new laptop), and Win 7.
Following instructions from a forum thread I got as far as downloading oscdimg.exe into the Win7_ISO directory.
However whatever I try, full path, etc., I get this error Code: oscdimg.exe : The term 'oscdimg.exe' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operableprogram. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
The command I am trying to run is Code: PS C:Win7 ISO> oscdimg -w4 -os -lWin_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660 -m -o -n -pEF -e -bc:Win7 ISOefimicrosoftootefisys.bin c:Win7 ISO c:Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso
I recently formatted my computer, installing Windows 8. And I realized one of my HDDs was acting weird. It doesn't allow Chrome to save files, it asks for UAC permissions when I try to delete, move or rename files. I looked it up, decided it was about ownership and permissions. Permissions were already set, full control. But ownership was wrong so I fixed it, rebooted my computer and problem still persists at the moment.
When I right click and go to the properties of a folder, it says "Read only". When I uncheck it and Apply, it "applies" it to the subfolders with a loading bar but it still remains "Read only".
In Windows 8 Pro x64 (and now with 8.1) shortly after installing Windows I couldn't run any installer from a web browser or by just double-clicking the file. I have to right-click and "Run as administrator"
The error messages vary but they all are variations on a theme of unable to access something.
I usually have UAC off but the UAC setting doesn't matter. I am an administrator. I am using Start8 and ModernMix if it matters. I've Googled and found nothing that worked but I don't remember exactly what I've tried.
Quicktime stopped working. Logged in as admin. Uninstalled then tried reinstall of 220.127.116.11 and 7.6 using 'run as admin'. No luck. Insufficient privileges to the directory--c:program files (x86) Quicktime. When I look at the folder properties under security---'You must have read permission to view. You do not have permission EVEN AS ADMINISTRATOR'.
My OS is Win 8.1. I use Twonky media server to play my music remotely on my smart TV. Obviously, it scans my music libraries, however, I want to have it scan for new playlists as well. I use Winamp as my music player. Where on my local disk a file is created when I generate a playlist in Winamp?
Im trying to open a quickbooks file on my new windows 8 computer. Nobody has used this computer, its about 3 hours out of the box, Im the only user but for some reason I need to provide administrative access to open a quickbooks file. Or to do anything really. I am marked as the admin on users accounts and settings. I have tried take ownership to no avail. This is infuriating that I cant use my own computer...
I have a user with a machine that was setup with Win 8.1 Home. The machine has been upgraded to 8.1 Pro and joined to a domain (WinSrv 2003). I need to get the content/configuration from their old local machine user profile to their new domain user profile.
I tried to copy the contents of their ../users/<name>/.. folder from the local user profile to the new domain user profile (after they had logged in once, and then logged off). This did not work. When I did the copy, I grabbed all files, including hidden...was that my mistake, or is the issue broader?
In the end....they want their old stuff and configuration under their new credentials/profile.
Here is an example AS you can see, I tried to change the setting from public to private because this is a desktop not a laptop, and what do I see when I return? It added duplicate entries for everything! WTH? I can remove some but not all, like utorrent I can't remove any of those but wth?
I bought a new notebook and went into control panel, Programs, uninstall and uninstalled the online games. But when I go and show All Apps, they still show up. How do I remove them from there? If I right click on the icon of one of the games, it doesn't give me an option to delete it.
When an item is pinned to Start, it is pinned to two locations: 1) Start screen, and 2) Desktop category in the Apps screen. This is redundant, as no one is going to go through two screens to access something that was available in the first.
Is there any way to remove the "Desktop" category from the Apps screen?
I uninstalled google talk from control panel (uninstall a program) however I can still see Google Talk application group (with all icons) in the All apps screen. I also checked C:UsersuserAppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart Menu Programs but couldn't find leftovers there.

I installed the Windows 8.1 a number of months ago. Since then (I'm thinking, now), I could not sign in with my microsoft account and neither could I get an energy report using the admin command prompt, and was also having problems with the One Drive sync. I never thought these were related, but after months now, I finally, after seeing the new 15 gb free with One Drive, thought I would try to open an account to get 15 free gb. I didn't realize I could open more than one microsoft account, but yeah, a new account opened with the free 15 gb on One Drive.
Okay, so I got this new account, and I could then sign in with a Microsoft account using this new account, which also made my original Microsoft account available, but the problem starts with my original local account. I can no longer sign in with my original local account (see attachment). To me, it is as if I have made a new microsoft account with a sub-account, which is my original Microsoft account. One is for Windows 8.1, (the new MS account), and my original MS account was for Windows 8, which no longer exists. Somewhere in the process of creating the new account, I was given the option to elevate it to Administrator and I did, it even shows as Administrator in the User Accounts "change your account type" where the "standard" and "administrator" are available, but this is not where I somehow elevated it. Now, it seems to be the boss, my original MS account seems to be secondary or an alias.
I closed the account, but it won't be official til October, since there is a 60 day recovery plan. Even with the account closed, folders and things, because I'm currently signed in with my original MS account, need to logged into with the new account info, which is what I mean by "the boss". I can't be doing that if I'm closing the account.
I did get an energy report, but the .html file wouldn't open (see attachment).
I learned One Drive is different with Windows 8 or is it just 8.1, haven't got into it to much, right now.
How can I get my local account back, keep my original MS account, and still be able to sign in, get an energy report, and use One Drive sync?
Using Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit, I have noticed that the full name of a local account (set with the net users "<username>" /fullname:"<full name>" command) is deleted whenever I switch from a Microsoft account to the local account associated with it. So, how do I have to prevent this?
