Post subject: XP Home Edition -- Computer Administrator question
Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windowsxp>general (more info?)

Hello all,

On XP Home Edition, do user accounts that are labeled "Computer
Administrator" belong to the Administrators group? The reason I ask is
that I booted in safe mode and removed the Users group permissions from
a certain directory, and when I logged in using a Computer
Administrator account I could NOT access the directory... so I'm
wondering if the only account that belongs to the Administrators group
is the Administrator account.

Also, is it possible on Home Edition to see what groups certain users
belong to? I went to Computer Management, but there's no option to
view Users and Groups like there is in Professional Edition...

Thanks!
