    Add the user to the local Administrators group.

    May depend on if the user is a local or a domain user. Adjust the Location appropriately.

    Hello, if both of you are using work or school accounts, please go into "Settings", select "Accounts" and go into the "Other users" tab. You will see that your user account is an administrator on this page. Please take a note of the naming convention as some users got a prefix before the actual username.

    Click on "Add account" next to "Add a work or school account". Type the correct naming convention for your colleague. Example: "DomainName\Username". Select Administrator as the account type.

    If you cannot see the naming convention, please go into CMD and type: "whoami /USER" to see your username.

    Hi there,

    First, you need to check with your company whether you can create a second admin as it seems it has been set up by your organization. If your company policy allows it then it's simple to do. Select Settings > Accounts > Family & other users, click the account to which you want to give administrator rights, click Change account type, then click Account type. Choose Administrator and click OK. That'll do it.
