Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage Another Account. (If you are prompted for a password or confirmation - type the password or confirm)

Click the account you want to change > Change the account type.

Select the account type you want - click Change Account Type.


Remember Windows requires at least one administrator account. If you have only one account on your computer - you can't change it to a standard account.

Apart from changing the account type through computer Control Panel, you can change it through User Account Control as well. Detailed guides are:
1. Right click Computer and select Manage from Start menu
2. Click System Tools, then Local Users and Groups
3. Double click on Groups
4. Double click Administrators
5. Highlight the wanted account, then click Remove and OK

If you want to set a user account as the administrator, you can do the reversed actions. Or you can take a look at http://blog.doofix.com/how-to-make-a-user-account-the-a.... Here are a few useful guides. Hope this helps you.
