Locked Re: User and admin accounts #Windows10

If I have understood Windows at all, then you should not use admin account for any everyday working due to much higher security risks. In that sense renaming it may not be wise.
There is no need to install WSJT-X using admin account, just a user account is fine.

FWIW ... having the separate admin account is OK, but really not necessary as I use the Admin account under Win 10 (renamed to my name).

However, if you have multiple users, I would have a separate Admin account.

I am moving from an old W7 computer with just a single account with admin privileges to a new W10 computer where I understand it is better to have an admin account and a separate user account.

I have a list of the user files I need to copy across to the new computer, Can someone please confirm that I should install WSJT-X with the admin account and then change to the User account and then copy the needed files to the user/appdata/local/WSJT in the user account?
