Sometimes it may be necessary to run a program while logged in to your PC as an administrator, as opposed to a guest account. We show you how
Every so often you need to run a program or installer while logged in as a normal user. This might be to upgrade an important program while a child is logged in to the PC, or sometimes it might be older software that will only work if it is used as an Adminstrator.
