Change membership of the Administrators or Backup Operators groups Take ownership of files Back up or restore files Load or unload device drivers Manage security and auditing logs In modern versions of Windows, you should avoid assigning users to be members of the Power Users group unless an application or service specifically requires it. Users Members of the Users group can use the computer but cannot perform system administration tasks and might not be able to run some legacy applications. Members cannot share folders. Members cannot install printers if the driver isn't already installed on the system. Members cannot view or modify system files. Any user created with Local Users and Groups is automatically a member of this group. User accounts designated as "standard" or "limited use" accounts are members of this group. A user account created as a "computer administrator" is made a member of this group (in addition to being a member of the Administrators group). Guests Members of the Guests group have limited rights (similar to members of the Users group). Members can shut down the system. Cryptographic Operators Members of the Cryptographic Operators group are allowed to perform cryptographic operations. Event Log Readers Members of the Event Log Readers group are allowed to use Event Viewer to read the system's event logs. Network Configuration Operators Members of the Network Configuration Operators group have limited administrative privileges to allow them to manage the system's network configuration. Remote Desktop Users Members of the Remote Desktop Users group are allowed to access the system remotely using the Remote Desktop Client. Performance Monitor Users Members of the Performance Monitor Users group can access performance counter data on the system. Performance Log Users Members of the Performance Log Users group are allowed to schedule logging of performance counters, enable trace providers, and collect event traces on the system. Hyper-V Administrators Members of the Hyper-V Administrators group are allowed to use Hyper-V on the system to create and manage virtual machines. Authenticating with Online User Accounts 0:00-1:09 In this demonstration, we're going to spend some time working with online user accounts. This is important because with Windows 8 and Windows 10 using an online user account is the preferred method for logging in to the local system. Essentially what happens is we create an online account with Microsoft and it's stored in the Cloud and then we use that online user account to access the local system. We access it through the Internet during the authentication process. Now doing so has a lot of advantages, for example if I log in with an online user account, then I can access the Windows Store to purchase and download apps.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
