I am college student. During practical lectures, I am facing a big problem. The computers in our lab have two users-Faculty & Student. The student user is open for all while faculty account needs special access. THE PROBLEM IS when I try to install any software or download any setup file, it needs administrative permissions. This is really annoying as the lab incharge is not telling us the password of Faculty user. Can anyone know how to bypass the password protection of Administrative user or how to stop these messages and work independently without intervention of administrator?
Bypassing the password protection of Admin user or work as administrator.
I’m sorry but there’s no way you can bypass the password protection for administrator accounts like in your school, the Faculty account, without being noticed. If you really want to access the administrator account in your laboratory, you may refer to Cannot Access Problem. It may help you get access to the Faculty account but at your own risk.
Here’s why. One of the methods described in the link will delete the password of the target account. Once the password is deleted, you can now access the Faculty account without using any password. But problem is if this happens, your laboratory administrator will surely notice it because of the missing password in the administrator account.
It is only a matter of checking which student is sitting and accessing that computer during those times and on that schedule.
