    It's ok to have several accounts with Administrator permissions, it depends upon how you choose to manage/control who-can-do-what on a shared PC.

    If you want to change (promote or demote) an account, here's a guide for Win10:

  • Hi ,

    You can remove the user account from Administrators group. Do not remove all the user accounts from Administrators group, we need at least one enabled administrator account on the system.

    Best regards
