Adding an Account to the Administrator Group

Sometimes you may need to add an account to the Administrator group temporarily to install software that otherwise won't run from a normal users account. Perhaps the software can be made to run if you can determine all of the files and registry keys it needs to access and provide the appropriate permissions on those, but sometimes the most reasonable course is just to reinstall the software from a user account after adding the user to the administrator group temporarily and then remove the user account afterwards.

To do so on Windows XP system, e.g a Windows XP Home or Media Center Edition system, take the following steps:

  1. Log into the system as the administrator.

  2. Click on Start.

  3. Click on Control Panel.

  4. Double-click on User Accounts.

  5. Double-click on the account to which you wish to grant administrator access.

  6. Click on Change the account type.

  7. Change the account type from Limited to Computer Administrator.

  8. Click on the Change Account Type button.

  9. Logoff as administrator and logon under the user account.

You can then follow the same procedure after you have installed the software to change the account type back to Limited.
