As admin X, I want to prevent another user (say, Y) from changing the account type of other accounts, but allow them to do all other administrator stuff. Is this possible, and how?

    No. Anything one admin does can be undone by another admin. – DavidPostill Nov 1 '17 at 19:34
  • Ok, darn. Is it good practice to self-answer if the answer is "nope, sorry" – SIGSTACKFAULT Nov 1 '17 at 19:35
  • You can self answer if you want ... – DavidPostill Nov 1 '17 at 19:36
  • @Blacksilver - If the answer is "nope, sorry" proper research should have caught it before you submitted the question. Seems like this is an X Y problem, you are trying to prevent an Administrator which has all rights on a Windows machine, from doing something an Administrator can do. – Ramhound Nov 1 '17 at 20:12

Nope :(

Sorry, you can't do this.
