change administrator windows 8.1laptop

  tonyq 13:12 07 Dec 2014

Hi my son recently bought a Toshiba laptop Windows 8.1, which I set up for him. When setting it up I used my Microsoft account. Not thinking at that moment it made me the administrator, I then made an account for my son which I believe is not a administrator. Is it possible to change this making both accounts an administrator?,or what would be the best thing to do? and how to do it. Thanks in advance.

This site won't let me post you the answer as it thinks it's spam, but try the 1st or 2nd google result at 'softwareok'
