System administrater

I am the original person to set this computer up, but I have lost my system admin status. This is my home computer that my grandchildren occasionally do their home school homework on.

How do I get my administration power back?

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


You have a problem if one of your grandchildren changed your Admin account to a User account. I would not let young folks meander around on a administrative account.


There are ways to fix this but it is outside of the scope of this forum because it tangentially relates to a password problem.


You may have to reinstall the operating system to fix this unless you search the Internet for ways to change the User account back to an Administrative account.
