one drive needs administrator rights

  conrail 20:48 20 Dec 2014

using win 8.1, have downloaded one drive and saved photos and documents to it which I can access fine via 'this pc' but when I try to open one drive it tells me 'your system administrator has blocked the use of onedrive' I have tried to change permissions by pc; properties; security; edit and adding my pc outlook account, all are ticked but they are greyed out, except special permissions, just greyed out,including SYSTEM; my outlook a/c and administrator how can I access these permissions or open one drive as administrator, I want to update photos from my tablet, no problems there with one drive, thanks

thanks rdave13, forgive my ignorance, how do I tell which my a/c is?

Hi v, under User Accounts > Change Your account Type, the administrator radio button is selected

sorry rdave13, where it shows 'v' it should show your name

thanks rdave13, next to my photo in user accounts it shows my name, under that is my ms outlook email address, I don't use this email address I got it when I got the laptop, under that is Administrator, under that is Password Protected, below is the options for standard and administrator, the latter has a black dot in which I assume means I am the administrator, the only time I need a password is logging on, I use a pin number for that

thanks rdave13, the change account type is greyed out, when I try to click the OneDrive icon I get the message 'Your system administrator has blocked the use of OneDrive'

thanks rdave13, the change account is greyed out, when I click on onedrive I get the following: 'your system administrator has blocked the use of OneDrive'

sorry about the delay, I have been looking at all the options that come up when I search OneDrive, I have an icon on the taskbar and one the apps screen, both give the same result,I did have it on this pc where I could see what I had saved but not run the program but I was offered an update for the program which removed it from this pc
