  1. Hi How can I start my pc with a user account and not the administrator account in Win10? Or is it possible to transfer everything into my admin account and just have the one. The user account has administrator rights but I can't delete the admin account.

    You MUST keep the admin account.
    1. use it to create a Limited User account and give it a password
    2. switch users and log into the new account to create all the windows dirs & files associated with this account.
    3. switch users back to the Admin
    4. in a command prompt, enter EXPLORER C:
    5. dbl-click the folder Users\
    6. ever folder you see is a login
    7. right-click on Administrator -> open new window
    8. right-click on the new account from above->open new window
    9. click-and hold on Documents (or My Documents)
    10. now drag onto the window of the NEW ACCOUNT and allow merge
    Give the Admin account a Password, as well as the New Account.
    You have migrated any user file created under the Admin\Docs to the NewUser

    Program Settings are another matter...
