After becoming an administrator, you will still need to enter your password when doing an administrative task. See Windows - Using Administrative Credentials.

Your administrator access will last for 10 minutes unless you manually remove it sooner.

  2. Wait for a moment as the application evaluates your account. When the Remove My Administrator Rights button enables, click it.
