When my wife tries to save and move documents on her Windows 8 computer she gets a message "unable to do this as you do not have administrator rights, get permission" or words to that effect Since I set up the computer in my name how does she get permission can we change it permanently? All help appreciated

Actually my wife is the administrator according to the system information but when using Word it will not let her save her file to a particular folder but to "documents" only unless given permission by the administrator

Set her admin privs again

  1. Log on to your computer with an administrator account. Enter the Metro/Moudern UI and type “user”. Then, click Settings from the list on the right hand side of the screens.

  2. Click User Accounts located at the very top of the second column.

  3. Click Change your account type in the User Accounts menu, select the account you wish to change, and click the bubble directly right of the administrator option below the account type. Click the grey Change Account Type button at the bottom of the window.
