Password Protect a User Account
A computer administrator account can change the type of account assigned to other accounts on the system. For example, a computer administrator account can be changed to a limited account or vice versa. Because any computer administrator account can change the account type for all other accounts, computer administrator accounts are not protected, meaning that one administrator can demote another administrator to a limited account.
Select a User Account
In the User Accounts window (select User Accounts in the Control Panel to display this window), select the user account for which you want to modify the account type.
Select Change the Account Type
In the account’s task window, select the Change the account type task. The account type screen opens.
Choose an Account Type
