How To Change Windows Vista User Account Types

Windows Vista allows the administrator or a user with administrator rights to create, delete or change existing user accounts. For example, if you are the main administrator and want to change another user with administrator rights to a standard user, you can do so by following the below steps.


To Change A Windows Vista User Account Type

  1. Click the Start button located in the lower-left corner of the Windows Vista desktop.
  2. Then click on Control Panel.
  3. In the Control Panel, click on User Accounts and Family Safety.
  4. Then click on User Accounts.
  5. Now click Manage another account.
  6. If you are prompted for a password or confirmation, enter it or provide confirmation.
  7. Now click on the user account you want to change.
  8. Then click on Change the account type.
  9. Select the account type you want, such as Standard User, Administrator or Guest.
  10. Then click on Change Account Type.

Note: If you are the computer Administrator, you can not change your own account to a Standard user without first creating another Administrator account. Depending on which version of Windows Vista you have, additional options may be available.
