Locked Re: User and admin accounts #Windows10

I have found that having a separate admin account can let you get into the computer when something breaks the one user account. Sometimes you can recover data and or fix things back up if you have another functional account (that you never use).

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?
