Elevating Your User#

Due to severe security considerations, the default user in AME has had Administrator privileges revoked. However, in certain situations, this may cause potential issues, as Windows was not designed to operate in this state, per se. If you require administrator privileges, you can add your user back to this group using amecs and navigate to Elevate User to Administrator.

Note that while certain inconveniences may arise due to not having direct administrator privileges, we strongly recommend sticking with the configuration we ship, for security reasons.

Alternatively, you can use the following command in an elevated command prompt:

Substitute <username> with your current username

net localgroup administrators <username> /add

After this, restart Windows, and the default user will have administrator privileges.
