    Open command prompt (cmd) and type

    net user administrator /active:yes (to activate admin)
    net user administrator /active:no (to deactivate admin)

    Now when you logg off you see 2 users who can login

    1. Administrator
    2. Your name

    To log in with administrator only you can just simply remove your own name. Sample my pc has Administrator and Moderator to login with

    Open command prompt (cmd) and type

    net user Moderator /active:no (to deactivate user Moderator)

    Now log off again and you see your full admin without the menu to chose what account you can login with.

    To delete your Moderator account open cmd again.

    net user Moderator /delete

    Although you can enable 'Administrator' account, simply turn off UAC will grant you the same 'Administrator Privillege' on your current account. I prefer the latter because 'Administrator' can be back-up account in case something goes wrong with the current account.
