W10 Does Not Remove Admin Password for User

November 18, 2019 at 12:27:17
Specs: Windows 10
I have a W10 computer. Main ADMIN account and a standard USER account. Anytime the user did something it required the admin password. On two other computers, all the same thing, I changed the USER from standard to admin so the password prompt stops coming up for them. However doing so on this third computer did not work. It still asks for the password even though under the ADMIN account USER does show as administrator. Also, the MAIN account can not access folders because I am denied but the USER account can, as long as the password is entered.
Any thoughts why USER still asking for ADMIN password?
Thanks.

I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.

There are all kinds of options when Windows 10 was installed including local accounts and Microsoft accounts. There are also different levels of security settings. You can look into these User settings from the original admin account for the User and see if there are other options there. Right now I am on Windows 7 so I cannot look for you and are not too up on these but others will probably pop over soon to help further.

Well, I did the exact same thing on all three laptops. All setup and configured the same way side by side. Everything in settings look correct just laptop 3 is not doing what it is supposed to.

If there is not too much you would loose, you can try deleting the user account and recreate it again.
