Question related to administrator privileges

Windows 8

Asked by: kristen2t2

I tried to upgrade to windows 8.1 and a banner popped up and said I needed to log into an account with administrator privileges but I am on the only account and when I checked it said my account already was the administrator, what do I have to do to be able to upgrade?

Are you using a Local Account?

To change a Local Account to Microsoft Account, I would suggest to try these steps.

a From the Settings charm, tap or click Change PC settings.
b In the left pane, tap or click Users.
c Tap or click Switch to a Microsoftaccount and follow the instructions.
Refer to the links for additional information.

Lead me not into temptation (I can find the way myself).
