Any problems switching admin account to limited user?

I am using an admin account on windows XP. I tried switching to limited user account but I would have to reconfigure everything and move a bunch of stuff over - bookmarks, email, files in my documents, and configurations for a bunch of other software.

I considered Drop My Rights and Alter Ego as a means of running programs with limited user rights from admin account. But that is not as good as running everything in a limited user account.

I have come up with the following idea. I could take the limited user account and make it the admin account. Then take my current admin account and make it a limited user account. Then I would not need to reconfigure and move a bunch of stuff.

Would I run into any problems by doing this?

  1. No, you should be able to make the change without issue, as long as it's not the default admin account. The default admin account can't be changed.
