Running XP Pro as a User, how do I make myself the Administrator, and be able to automatically login as the admin when I run XP each time? I'm on a single machine so I ought to be admin, but I must have set myself up as just a user when installing, how to correct this!
Folders! I keep having my folders do things I don't want them to do, like Autoarrange, sort in alphabetical order, View as Tile instead of Icon, and go fullscreen not small window, and when saving a file in a folder set to view in icon mode, instead of it appearing at the bottom of the folder window it decides to go to the right side of the files on the top row, thus I have to scroll the window to the right to see the file, subsequent files get saved under that file going downwards?
I set one folder up how I want, then set 'Remember each folders view settings', and clicked 'apply to all folders' but after a while the folder just says 'stuff you' and arranges itself how it wants? I want EVERY folder to NOT AUTO ARRANGE and NOT SORT ALPHABETICALLY! Basically, if I move one icon out of skew I want the folder to remember it, not arrange it itself!! This way I know that files I save to a folder are old at the top of the folder, files at the bottom are newer!!
By default, Administrator account is hidden if there're any other user names. Check under "control pannel > users" to see wether u r computer admin or limited user. Use "gpedit.exe" to configure ur system until u r satisfied with ur system...
Download "PowerToy" from Micro$oft for XP... very powerful =)
