    Open the Windows Control Panel and click on "Change Account Type" under "User Accounts".

    Open the "Run" window using the Windows + R key combination and type the command "netplwiz". Press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to start it as an administrator.


    Type "cmd" in the Windows search bar, right click on "Command Prompt" and run it as administrator.


    Once started, send the following command:


    net localgroup administrators "NomeAccount" /add

    Where instead of AccountName you will have to enter the name of the account whose type you want to change (in our case, the command typed would have been: net localgroup administrators "Try" / add).

    Account type change via Windows Powershell

    Type "Windows Powershell" in the Windows search bar and right click on the first entry to start it as administrator.

    Once started, use the following command and give enter:

    Add-LocalGroupMember -Group "Administrators" -Member "username"

    Here too, instead of username you will have to enter the name of the account whose type you want to change (in our case, the command typed would have been: Add-LocalGroupMember -Group “Administrators” -Member “Test”).
