    In Windows 7 I run my primary user as a Standard user to help mitigate the chances of getting an infection and applications going awry. In Windows 10 I have found how to make a new local user and set it to Standard. I cannot however find how to change a Microsoft Account connected account to a Standard User and make it so only the local user that I setup is an Administrator.

    Also, in Windows 7 you can choose to run an application as an Administrator or as another user (holding shift when right clicking). Is this feature removed in Windows 10?

    I found how to do this. You can change it in the Device Manager. However, now there might be a permission issue with the Store as when trying to run some updates I keep getting and error 0x8024A003. Which from what I can tell is a permission issue. Anyone seen this problem?
