Useful info from (c) Microsoft:
On Windows 10 is an administrator account is a user account that lets you make changes that will affect other users. Administrators can change security settings, install software and hardware, and access all files on the Windows 10 computer. Administrators can also make changes to other user accounts on Windows 10.
When you set up Windows 10, you will be required to create a Windows user account. This account is an administrator account that allows you to set up your Windows 10 computer and install any programs on Windows 10 that you would like to use. Once you have finished setting up your computer, we recommend that you use a standard user account for your day-to-day computing. It's more secure to use a standard user account instead of an administrator account because it can prevent people from making changes that affect everyone who uses the windows 10 computer.
