Why would you want to change "hp admin" to you?
Would that happen to be your username? Notice - I asked if you saw your
*username* in the list - not your name. They are not necessarily the same
Are you asking how you become an administrator?
You ask one of the people who is an administrator to change your account
(your username) so it is a member of the Administrators group. If you do
not know how to do that (nor does the person who you ask to do this) then
you are better off (both of you) not being a member of the administrators
group for your daily use of the computer and are better off using a
different administrative level account only when the need arises and
utilizing your regular accounts for daily use. (In fact - most everyone is
better off that way - just slightly more so if you do not understand the
responsibility of using a computer as an administrative user all the time.)
What is your username?
Click on the START button.
Locate and click on the RUN button.
cmd /k set
When the command prompt opens, it will show a long list of "XXXXXX=XXXXXX"
things. One of the latter is "USERNAME"="XXXXXXX".. the stuff after the
equal sign is *your* username on that computer.
