Administrator Account

In Windows, administrator accounts are user accounts that are used for managing aspects of a computer, domain, or the whole enterprise IT infrastructure.

Administrator accounts are often named Administrator in standalone computers and small environments. However, any user in Windows can be made an administrator by adding it to the proper group.

Common administrator account subtypes include Local Administrator and Domain Admistrator.
