To be or not to be an Administrator, that is the question.

ENVY TE01-0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to transfer files between my Envy PC (brand new last week) and an iMac  using the iMac's Migration Assistant. I found the Envy's IP address and entered into the iMac's Migration Assistant but the operation failed, reporting the Envy was locked. The problem reportedly could be Window's Bitlock Disk Encryption.

 

I tried to get Bitlock's current status via the command prompt but got a message saying I needed to be an Administrator. I am the only user of this PC and my Account indicates that I an a (the) administrator.

How do I get out of this pickle?
