Hello, I accidentally changed my account type from administrator to standard and now it doesn't let me to change it back. There shows up User account control with a question Do you want allow this app to make changes to your devices? and only one answer option No. Any suggestions how to change back? I have Windows 10.

click here

enable the hidden admin account and use that to change your accound back to an administrator account.

Or boot into safe mode which uses that account.

Sorry about answering late but I am not able to do that. If I want to run command prompt, it (user account control) asks me to log in with my admin username and password, but there's no place where I can write that! It offers me one option to click - no. The same pops out when i want to troubleshoot sound problems and etc.

by that i can't make any changes - enable hidden account, boot safe mode etc. - because i have to be an administrator. what an irony - i have to be an administrator to change my profile from user to administrator!! :@
