Hello, may I ask if the default administrator group in Windows 10 has default permissions? Can these permissions be modified? Can I set up the same administrator group myself

    Hi, I'd be happy to help you out with your question. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. The default administrator group in Windows 10 does indeed have default permissions. These permissions allow members of the group to perform various administrative tasks on the system, such as installing software, modifying system settings, and accessing protected files and folders. If you need to modify the permissions of the administrator group, you can do so by adjusting the group policy settings or by manually changing the permissions of individual files and folders. However, it's important to note that modifying the default permissions of the administrator group can lead to security risks and system instability, so it's generally not recommended. If you'd like to create a new administrator group, you can do so by creating a new user group and assigning it the appropriate permissions. To do this, simply open the Computer Management tool, navigate to the Local Users and Groups section, and select the Groups folder. Right-click on an empty area and select "New Group" to create a new user group, and then assign it the necessary permissions by modifying its properties. Just keep in mind that the new administrator group won't have the same default permissions as the built-in administrator group. For more Information, please refer to following resources :-
