I just received my computer and I turn it on to set it up. It logged me in automatically of course, then I go ahead and create a microsoft account to sign in. After creating the email and password for my account, it asks me later that I need to insert the “current windows password” which is the Admin password. Because whenever i try to make changes in the windows it asks me for an admin user and password. Please help me resolve this issue, i’ve been stuck on this problem for hours!!

@angxlavargas -- in addition to creating the "Administrator" account in Windows, you have created a "user" account, that is defined to NOT have the privilege to "administer" Windows, e.g., to install an app.
So, when you try to install, Windows asks for the administrative password, to allow the app to install.
Logon to the "Administrator" account when you want to administer your computer, and logoff from that account after you have completed the task, and logon to your "user" account.
