    … or just launch any executable by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator”. UAC prompt will show whether you’re enough of a boss.

    Now this is weird. I activated the built-in administrator account using the Winaero Tweaker and I get “Error 1376. no local accounts” after typing “net localgroup Administrators”.

    I was always wondering why I still see all those annoying confirmation dialog boxes (for copying, deleting, moving files, etc) while being administrator. Could it be that this built-in admin account in Windows 10 is not a “real” admin account anymore?

    Oh, I get it!

    I had to use the word “Administrators” in the operating system’s language (in German in my case) and now I see the proper information.
