assuming that you are working from a computer with windows as the operating system: click on start, then on control panel then on user accounts from there you can change the user accounts click on change an account then choose the account you would like to change then change my account type then you have the choice of either computer administrator or a limited account if another user is already registered as computer administrator, this could be tricky. this would then require asking them to shed their responsibilities onto you. to do this they just need to follow the same procedure as above. NOTE: only the computer administrator can change the account types!

Can't Change my Computer Vista account into Administrator. an account appeared called Administrator and when i log into that account to change my original account back to administrator is won't let me?

"Administrator" is a built in account that comes with Vista. What it sounds like you are trying to do is change the name of your account to "administrator" or create a new account called "administrator" but that name is already taken by the built-in account - you can't have two accounts with the same name, even if one is called"Administrator" and the other is called "administrator". You should be able to create a new account and assign administrator privileges to it in Vista. You can even call it something close to "Administrator" - something like "administrator1" would probably work. You should also be able to change the name of the built-in account, but the name "administrator" may still be reserved and not available for you to use even if you change the name of the built-in Administrator account. I'm not at a Vista machine where I can test it out.If the problem is an inability to create an administrator TYPE of account, then you are faced with a different problem and something is wrong with the OS

How do you change the administrator account password from standard account?

This is the beauty of a file system called NTFS. NTFS is based on security, and is on any Windows computer from Windows 2000 to now. This makes things such as trying to change the administrator's password from a standard account not possible. NTFS additionally adds file protection - your files will not be viewed from a standard account if set to as an administrator. Your answer in short is no. There is no way to change the administrator password with a standard account.
