We recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I'm trying to give another employee local administration rights for his workstation but it's different in Windows 10. Does anyone know how to do it? I've already rebooted the machine several times.

    Make sure you’ve sufficient admin rights to make changes. Open the settings app and go to the account group of settings where you find the Family & other users tab, scroll down to the Other users section and you will see list of existed accounts. Click the account you want to change the type of and click change account type. In the popup that opens, select the account/name & select Administrator. Now click Ok for the change to take effect.
