I got a new laptop and while setting it up, it asked microsoft account. So I gave my microsoft account. Now I could use the laptop using that account for regular browsing and other activities. But the problem is when I am trying to execute some commands, it says I am not administrator or I need to run the cmd as administrator.
What I don't get is, I am logging into the windows using microsoft account. I see a folder in C:/Users/. Now am I a local user or a admin user?
Microsoft account creates a local user by default for windows?
Why do I need to run command prompt as an administrator for some commands? Am I not admin for my own system? If not, who am I while using the system? Microsoft account user or local user?
